The Sewacajua Community Forest: The need to strengthen rule of law in the community forestry sector in Liberia

In December 2017 the Sustainable Development Institute commissioned an assessment examining the Sewacajua (also called Sewaca) Community Forest Management Agreement (CFMA) in Juazon Statutory District in Sinoe County. The purpose of the assessment was to gather information about the Sewaca CFMA from community residents with a focus on their knowledge and involvement in the application process, investigate reports of violations of the regulations governing CFMA allocation, the nature of their agreement with a logging company to harvest logs in their community forest, and the potential community benefits enshrined in the agreement with the company.
