Supporting the Implementation of FLEGT Voluntary Partnership Agreement in Liberia

LTS has been contracted by the European Forest Institute’s (EFI) EU FLEGT Facility to contribute to the implementation of the Voluntary Partnership Agreement (VPA) in Liberia with a specific focus on the Legality Assurance Systems (LAS) related measures in 2012-2013. The key objectives are, in cooperation with the Liberian stakeholders, to make necessary preparations for establishing and operating two new Forestry Development Authority (FDA) units called Liberia Verification Department (LVD), that will be responsible for the legality verification functions and the COCS, and Liberia Licensing Department (LLD) that will issue FLEGT licenses to the export consignments; draft procedures and plan data management systems of the LAS; assist in integrating in the LAS all timber products identified in the VPA Annex I and timber sources as identified in the VPA Annex II; and support the relevant regulatory reforms.
