Conflict: the fourth "C" in Liberia's forest management by Vaneska Litz and Leif Kindberg

September 14, 2017

In this presentation, Vaneska Litz and Leif Kindberg, Tetra Tech, explored the viability of the "three C's": conservation, community and commercial forestry conservation strategy in the face of competing pressure for communities to engage in commercial logging activities in some of the last remaining tracts of the Upper Guinean forest. They further examined the potential for conflict that could arise from these complex pressures and rights, and provided insights into the complexity of these issues that must be properly understood in order to develop viable interventions that will not contribute to instability and conflict in the region.
