Sustainable management of natural resources
Liberia promotes sustainable management of natural resources through increased vegetation cover to improve ecosystem services in degraded areas, increase rural income, and improve biodiversity richness in the country. Liberia is set forward with a few objectives in mind related to encouraging dialogue that would lead to potential solutions regarding the sustainable management and use of natural resources for peace, land restoration and food security. The country agrees to place 30% or more of its forest estate under protected area status by 2020. It will also pilot direct payments to communities for protecting the forest. The sustainable use and management of natural resources such as forests, mines etc. in Liberia will serve as one of adaptation solutions for the country and the whole region.
