The overall goal of FIFES is to conserve biodiversity while enhancing livelihoods opportunities that are inclusive and sustainable for rural and forest independent communities. In line with the LIberian forest policy that integrates conservation, commercial and community based forest management objectives, the FIFES activity promotes the development of forest based and forest friendly enterprises that reduce over-exploitation which results in deforestation, forest degradation, biodiversity loss and increase general threats to the forest resource base. There is strong support for integration of gender equity and youth opportunities.
