The TCP is facilitating the implementation of the CBF Concept at a pilot scale, drawing lessons and using it to leverage funding for future scale-up. Implementation of the CBF Concept in Sierra Leone will lead to improved security of tenure, clear incentive mechanisms, improved food security and strong community institutions which will go a long way in securing and increasing the forest resources and hence enhancing the environmental services they provide. While FAO is taking the lead in providing technical guidance and advice, the implementation of the project is the responsibility of forestry department staff at national and decentralized levels.
