Summary

This project will identify the most important Community Forests for biodiversity around the Gola Rainforest National Park and empower communities to protect them through tailored training to increase food security, linking it with zero-deforestation in High Conservation Value (HCV) areas. The Gola REDD+ project protects Gola Rainforest National Park by helping forest-edge people sustainably increase crop yield, keeping annual deforestation of their community forests to under 2.5%. However any deforestation risks losing High Conservation Value community forest, which provides habitat for globally-threatened species and connects the Gola Rainforest National Park with protected Liberian forest. This project will identify the most important Community Forests for biodiversity and empower communities to protect them.
