Brief History of the Forestry Development Authority

The Forestry Development Authority is a state corporation established by an Act of the Legislature in 1976 with the mandate of ensuring the sustainable management and conservation of Liberia’s forest and related natural resources for the benefit of current and future generations. This mandate was further strengthened through the National Resource Law of 1979. The 2006 National Forestry Reform Law is the current legal instrument that guides the management of forest resources in Liberia.
