So, who owns the forest?

This landmark study sets out the confusions and conundrums of forest tenure in Liberia today and develops clear recommendations towards solving potential conflicts over natural resources. It is essential reading for all those involved in negotiating partnership agreements between the EU and timber producing countries. The study shows that Liberia can set a precedent by returning ownership of land to communities. This would lead to improved forest governance, control of illegal logging and remedial action against historical injustices.
