ClientEarth has created a law database of the main policies, laws and regulations governing forest conversion in Liberia. Laws in Liberia are not easily available, particularly online. With this law database, NGOs, communities and researchers will have access to the laws that regulate forests in the country.
The environmental impacts of forest conversion are devastating, but the people and communities who live in the forest are also at risk.
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.
This page aims to provide information to Civil Society Organisations and other actors working on natural resources and community rights related issues in Liberia. We consider this page a ‘living document’, a resource which will be continuously updated and improved upon.
