    The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) in collaboration with the Forestry Development Authority (FDA) held a two-day national stakeholder workshop on the implementation of the Non-legally Binding Instrument on All Types of Forests (NLBI, also known as the Forest Instrument)on September 27 and 28, 2011. The Forest Instrument is a voluntary agreement of member states of the United Nations Forum on Forests to enhance sustainable forest management and reduce deforestation and forest degradation. More than 80 participants from various institutions including government ministries and agencies, non-governmental organizations, private institutions, civil society organizations, the universities and youth groups , traditional authorities and the media were in attendance. The participants were presented the context and origin of the Forest Instrument, its purpose, and the policies and measures that countries need to implement. They were also presented the results of c onsultations held in the fifteen counties. Participants worked in three groups to determine Liberia’s situations relative to the implementation of the policies and measures of the Instrument. They identified several policies and measures of the NLBI that are currently not adequately addressed. Through a prioritization process, participants agreed on five (5) policies and measures that Liberia needs to pay a lot more attention to, if the country is to move forward towards sustainable forest manag ement.
