Sierra Leone's Strategy for the Development of a Climate Change Abatement Economy: Introducing and Implementing REDD/REDD+ – July 2010


In an effort to develop a climate change abatement economy, Sierra Leone’s main focus is to earn forest carbon credits through the implementation of REDD/REDD+ programmes. The government aims to develop and manage 2.5 million hectares of forests in the next decade to assist income-generating activities of non-timber forest products, sustainable tree crops and ecotourism. They plan to achieve this through participatory forest management in all forested districts and communities.
