*How can forest resources be managed in the interests of all stakeholders?
How can Forest Governance be strengthened to deliver results that make
economic, social and ecological sense?*

*Comprising of West African events (Ghana & Liberia) and Central African
events (DRC & Cameroon), */Forest Governance Forum/* is designed to create
an in-country space for discussion and exchange of ideas, experience and
research.*

*Blending regional and global speakers and participants from Government,
Civil Society, Trade & Industry, the NGO Community and the Academic World,
the objective is to bring debates surrounding Forest Governance to four key
African countries in order to widen participation, to facilitate more
national voices in the conversation, and to situate issues within a local and
international context.*

*Inspired by Biannual Illegal Logging Stakeholder Conferences at Chatham
House  [2]in London, The Forest Governance Forum contributes to the broader
objective of an EC-funded project, ‘Strengthening African Forest
Governance’  [3], which also includes academic and training components.*

From
6 October 2015 to 7 October 2015
in (Liberia)
Organised byForestry Development Authority, Global Witness, NGO Coalition, Rights & Resources Group

The conference aim is *to develop a shared vision for Liberia’s forests and
people and to create practical plans to implement this vision*. The past two
years have seen a shift in the discourse of Liberia’s forest sector, and
the conference is a timely, strategic opportunity to bring about profound and
lasting change for the country’s forests, local communities, and the wider
economy. In the post-Ebola context, unsustainable demand for forest land and
timber has returned, national legal and policy processes are underway, and
new initiatives and projects in the country’s forest sector are
forthcoming. The conference therefore brings international speakers and
Liberian expertise together to assist national efforts to develop strategies
that support communities and that consider and preserve the local and global
benefits provided by Liberia’s rainforests.
