Forest Issues in Liberia: An analysis of media coverage June 2021 to May 2022

Media coverage of forest issues in Liberia has been tracked since January 2021, and collated in an online, publicly accessible database. All media reports found online, and all episodes of the weekly radio programme Forest Hour are included. The database catalogues issues searchable by company, location and issue, so offers an opportunity to improve monitoring and review progress or lack thereof in forest governance. The 134 issues have been analyzed in three ways: (i) the most common issues; (ii) the companies most often involved; and (iii) the counties within Liberia where most issues arise. It provides a way to systematize issues that have been presented to the public.

It has been produced by the members of the Independent Forest Monitoring Coordination Mechanism (IFM CM) in Liberia.
