This brochure provides a very short summary of some of the different civil society-led independent forest monitoring initiatives currently being implemented. It groups these into three types:
- Emphasis on mandated IFM, and forest operations: Cameroon, RoC, DRC, CAR, Ivory Coast and Gabon.
- Emphasis on initiatives led solely by civil society, but with legal backing: Indonesia, Liberia.
- Emphasis on citizen-reporting and digital technology: Cameroon, DRC, Ghana, Liberia, Peru.
The brochure was prepared for a forum on CS-IFM held in Accra, Ghana, on 14 February 2018.
