Liberia Forest Sector Project (LFSP): Prepare and Implement Sustainable Livelihood Support Activities for Communities around Sapo National Park: Assessment Phase
Detailed description of project:
The Liberia Forest Sector Project (LFSP) is financed by the Liberia Single Donor Forest Landscape Trust Fund. The Project Development Objective (PDO) is improved management of, and increased benefit sharing in, targeted forest landscapes. The LFSP has four components, namely:
Component 1, Strengthened Regulatory and Institutional Arrangements for Implementation of REDD+;
Component 2, Strengthened Capacity for Management of Targeted Forest Landscapes;
Component 3, Forest Monitoring Information System; and
Component 4, Project Management, Monitoring, and Communication.
LFSP seeks to promote the sustainable management of the Protected Areas network of Liberia. Communities and households around the project-supported PAs will be provided with opportunities to restore their livelihoods to at least pre-project levels.
It is intended that those people who will face restricted access to the Sapo National Park, including small-scale miners, hunters and others living in the targeted communities around the SNP will be supported through improved livelihoods options to help deter them from activities that are detrimental to the protected area.
