2009 Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation (REDD) in Liberia: Developing a Comprehensive Framework for REDD Incentives Targeted at Communities and Conservation

This joint project conducted by the 3 NGOs:

  • Conservation International (CI)
  • Forest Trends (FT)
  • Nature Conservation Research Centre (NCRC)

This is the second phase of the previous grant made in 2007 by the McCall Macbain Foundation to CI and FT and is a renewal of the MMF commitment to Liberia’s National REDD Strategy.

Their joint efforts will position local communities and the government to tap new markets and increase revenues from ecosystem products and services, ranging from non-timber forest products to carbon credits in voluntary carbon markets in Liberia as well as strengthening national technical capacity and institutional structures for developing a low-carbon economy in the country.
