With tremendous foresight and inspirational determination of active community members and local social and environmental organizations, West African Liberia has managed to conserve an abundance of its natural environment. After two decades of civil war, Liberia is still one of the richest countries in natural resources, yet its people remain some of the poorest in the world. In order for the country to survive, it is imperative that the Liberian government manage its natural resources in a way that benefits its citizens and creates sustained peace.
