Forest Governance and the Voluntary Partnership Agreement: Deepening forest sector reform in Liberia

On 9 May 2011 the government of Liberia and the European Union (EU) signed a Voluntary Partnership Agreement (VPA) in the Liberian capital, Monrovia. The aim of the agreement is to improve forest governance by tackling the problem of illegal logging, improving transparency and public participation, enhancing community rights and strengthening the role of civil society in overseeing the forest sector.

This report by the Liberian NGO Sustainable Development Institute (SDI) presents an analysis of lessons learned from the forest sector reform process in Liberia and includes recommendations for all key players to ensure the implementation of the VPA will contribute to improving good governance in Liberia.
