Reduced Emission from Deforestation
This Website provides an overview of the progress of REDD+ in Liberia
Welcome to Redd+ Liberia
The aim of Liberia REDD+ is to encourage the nation to contribute to climate change mitigation efforts by: i) reducing greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) by slowing, halting and reversing forest loss and degradation; and ii) increasing removal of GHGs from the earth’s atmosphere through the conservation, management and expansion of forests.
The County has showed interest in REDD+ and was required to progress through three phases, which are closely linked. These include:
- readiness phase, involving the development of national strategies or action plans, REDD+ mitigation actions, and capacity building;
- implementation of national strategies and results-based demonstration activities, enacting REDD+ actions and national strategies or plans that could involve further capacity building, technology development and transfer, and results-based demonstration activities;
- Results-based actions that must be fully measured, reported and verified.
