Liberia has a forest cover of 4.5 million hectares including 43% of the Upper Guinean forests, a biodiversity hotspot. Between 2005 and 2010, the national annual deforestation rate was 0.68%.

Following the Bali COP, Liberia submitted a Readiness Plan Idea Note (R-PIN) to the Forest Carbon Partnership Facility. The R-PIN was successfully received and Liberia was granted USD$200,000 to develop a Readiness Preparation Proposal (R-PP). The R-PP was approved in March 2012 and a preparation grant was signed in June 2012.

Donors

Main donors, levels of funding committed and disbursed to Liberia between 2009 and 2011:

Proportional total donor commitments and disbursements 2009-2012

 

Donor commitments by location, 2009-2012

 
   
  • Proportional total donor commitments and disbursements 2009-2012

    The chart shows the relative levels of funding donors have committed as well as the proportion disbursed to their recipients through 2012. The percentage of committed funding that has been disbursed varies from 100% to 0%. However, the majority of listed donors tend to have a disbursement percentage greater than 76%.

    International NGOs (Fauna and Flora International, Birdlife International, CARE International) have together committed and disbursed a total of US$120,000 for REDD+ activities in Liberia. In general, international NGOs/academic institutions tend to be recipients of REDD+ funding rather than donors. However, in some instances, international NGOs and academic institutions mobilize funding through direct public donations which are spent on activities. International NGOs/academic institutions are listed as donors when finance cannot be tracked back to another donor organization.

  • Donor commitments by location, 2009-2012

    The chart maps the geographic distribution of the main donors to Liberia and cumulative support by geographic location of donor headquarters. This chart therefore shows the growing importance of both government and non-government actors in financing for REDD+. For Liberia the majority of funding is coming from the US, Norway and international multilaterals.

    Multilaterals and other types of internationally-focused donors are shown in the purple circle.
