DescriptionThe overall objective of this project is to consolidate the management and development of Sapo National Park and peripheral communal forests as part of landscape-level development. The GEF is requested to fund activities that will bring Sapo National Park and biodiversity conservation in south-east Liberia from its current low level to a situation where the Park is reasonably protected over the long term, and it plays a keystone role in training Liberian conservationists and in linking the Cestos-Senkwehn-Gbi forests (part of which is proposed as a national park), to the Grebo National Forest (proposed as a national park) which itself is adjacent to the Taï forest complex of Côte d’Ivoire.
