Africa: Independent forest monitoring to boost transparency

Independent forest monitoring by civil society can improve transparency and help strengthen checks on illegality in the forest sector in Africa, an international conference heard last month in Accra. Over 70 experts from ten countries including Cameroon, Cote D’Ivoire, Liberia, Central African Republic and the Democratic Republic of Congo attended the African Sub-Regional Conference on Independent Forest Monitoring on 10-11 May. The conference was co-organized by Civic Response Ghana, with support from the FAO-EU Forest Law Enforcement, Governance and Trade (FLEGT) Programme, and the Congo Basin Forest Monitoring project (CV4C) implemented by the Centre for International Development and Training (CIDT).
