Conflict: the fourth "C" in Liberia's forest management?

In their Sept 14, 2017 presentation titled Conflict: the fourth "C" in Liberia's Forest Management?, Vaneska Litz and Leif Kindberg, Tetra Tech, explore the viability of "the three Cs": 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 examine the potential for conflict that could arise from these complex pressures and rights and provide 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.
