2007 Reducing Emissions from Deforestation in Liberia

With support from the McCall MacBain Foundation, Forest Trends assists the Liberian Government’s newly created Carbon Working Group (CWG) to develop pilot projects to promote community economic development based on natural resource management and payments for carbon sequestration credits in Eastern Liberia.

The primary goal of these pilot projects is to help create additional income and jobs for local communities and to provide them with vested interests in conserving their natural resources. These pilot projects also form part of CWG’s strategy to create Reduced Emissions From Deforestation and Degradation (REDD) credits at the national level.
