Forest Connect in other countries
Welcome to the Forest Connect!
Forest Connect is an international alliance dedicated to tackling the isolation of small forest enterprises. Established in late 2007, its aims are to avoid deforestation and reduce poverty by better linking sustainable small forest enterprises to each other, to markets, to service providers and to policy processes such as National Forest Programmes (NFPs). Save My Future (SAMFU) Foundation is the National Partner for Forest connect Liberia.
It currently involves partner institutions in 13 countries: Burkina Faso, China, Ethiopia, Ghana, Guatemala, Guyana, Laos, Malawi, Mali, Mozambique, Nepal, and recently also the Democratic Republic of Congo and Liberia plus a broader network of supporters in more than 60 countries linked by an international social networking site.
The Forest Connect alliance is co-managed by the Natural Resources Group within the International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED) and the Community-Based Forest Enterprise Development programme (CBED) of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO).
