  • IDH Liberia: Strengthening land governance, improving livelihoods and protecting forests

    IDH brings together governments, companies, CSOs, local communities and financiers in action driven coalitions to tackle global issues such as deforestation linked to agriculture production, poverty and climate change. IDH’s landscape approach in Liberia is based on strengthening land governance and securing community land rights, improving food security and diversification of income in rural areas. Alongside this it also develops supply chains and investment opportunities that offer communities options to increase agricultural productivity while protecting forests. IDH is working in two landscapes: The South East and North West, with target communities in Lofa and Sinoe Counties. Key commodities we work on are palm oil, cocoa and rice.
