Description

more
Forests in Liberia are managed by the state under the National Forestry Reform Law, enacted in October 2006. Following the enactment of this law, UN Security Council timber export sanctions against Liberia were lifted, permitting commercial forestry activities to resume. A Forest Management Contract refers to a long-term Forest Resources License issued by the Government under Section 5.3 of the Forestry Reform Law 2006 that allows a Person to manage a tract of Forest Land and harvest or use Forest Products. Forest management contracts include concession areas of 50,000 hectares to 400,000 hectares and are open for bids from qualified bidders that demonstrate at least 51% ownership by Liberian citizens; concessions of more than 100,000 hectares are open for bidding from international investors.
