Our Mission

Environmentally-sound Economic Development for SMFEs

We promote partnerships that support environmentally-sound economic development of Small and Medium Forest Enterprises (SMFEs).

Ongoing Projects

Building the capacities of Small-Medium Forest Enterprises in Ghana and Liberia to supply and Trade in Legal Timber (Phase II)

Small and Medium Forest Enterprises (SMFEs) lack the systems and technical know-how needed to apply forestry rules and regulations meant for the legal functioning of the forestry sector. The project, funded by the Foreign Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) of the UK Government, seeks to build the capacities of SMFEs in Ghana and Liberia to comply with FLEGT requirements.
