Forest Trends, Skills and Agricultural Development Services (SADS), and the Liberian Forestry Development Authority (FDA) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) have been compiling information on the flows of finance for REDD+ activities as part of the international REDD+ Expenditures Tracking Initiative (REDDX).
Based on detailed surveys and interviews with key stakeholders including donors, implementing organizations, beneficiaries, and government agencies, REDDX provides a transparent and publicly available account of financial flows for REDD+ in Liberia.
Over the six year period from 2009–2014, donors have committed a total of US$47.2 million to support REDD+ readiness and development in Liberia. REDDX tracking has begun to reveal information on how much of the committed funding is actually being disbursed, the types of REDD+ activities being supported, and the organizations managing REDD+ implementation on the ground; however, continuing research will clarify this
picture even more in the coming years.
