Government of Liberia and SCNL Launch Co-Management Plan For The Gola Forest National Park Partnering for the protection of the ecosystem
The Government of Liberia (GoL) and Society for the Conservation of Nature of Liberia (SCNL), launched the Co-Management Plan for the Gola Forest National Park (GFNP) in Grand Cape Mount and Gbarpolu Counties. The Forestry Development Authority (FDA) in collaboration with SCNL, under the Gola-PAPFor Project, with funding from the European Union (EU), launched the Co-Management Plan Development process for the Gola Forest National Park (GFNP).
The development of the Co-management Plan will allow both the GoL, and the forest-edge communities to jointly manage the park with their respective shared roles and responsibilities. This process will ensure communities have voices in the management of natural endowment (Forest).
