Competing demands for food, fuel and profit are driving loss and degradation of the world’s remaining forests. There is a widespread recognition that improving forest governance is essential to manage these competing demands on forests fairly and effectively.
ClientEarth is developing a programme to build the legal capacity of civil society representatives in West and Central Africa as they work to implement reforms to ensure that timber sourced from their forests has been legally harvested.
Supportting developing countries to address the fundamental governance challenges that drive deforestation is an essential part of efforts to reduce emissions from deforestation and forest degradation (REDD).
