The US Forest Service at the request of USAID/Liberia conducted a gap analysis of four key domestic natural resource markets in Liberia: timber, charcoal, bushmeat and other non-timber forest products (NTFPs). Given that Liberia’s forest is mostly perceived by Government of Liberia decision makers as valuable because of timber exports and potential conversion to large scale agricultural concessions, having an accurate estimate of the value of these associated resources is vital for effective management of natural resources in general. Within Liberia, however, there are robust national and subnational markets for timber, charcoal, bushmeat, and other NTFPs. These domestic markets impact the forests and biodiversity and contribute to the economy in ways that are poorly understood.
