Central and West Africa is home to some of the world’s richest forests. We work with legal professionals and civil society in Ghana, Republic of Congo, Gabon, Ivory Coast, and Liberia to help ensure that people can meaningfully support the reform and enforcement of their country’s forest laws.
All forest operators in the Ivindo Department of Gabon have committed to sharing profits arising from timber harvesting with the local communities impacted.
This page provides information to Civil Society Organisations and other actors working on forests, natural resources and community rights related issues in Ghana, and is continuously updated and improved upon.
The latest version of the new Gabonese draft Forest Code has been officially submitted to the Prime Minister of Gabon, Daniel Ona Ondo.
Since 2012, ClientEarth has been supporting civil society through providing legal support and training to the stakeholders involved in reform processes in the forest sector.
ClientEarth started working in Liberia in 2015. We are supporting legal reform and implementation by gathering and analysing forest laws in order to make them more accessible.
