NDF's current activities are targeted towards responsible forest management through WWF's Forest Sector Transformation Strategy (GFTN and NGPP) and effective Law Enforcement by participating in the Forest Law Enforcement, Governance and Trade (FLEGT) and Voluntary Partnership Agreement (VPA) to address the problem of illegal logging. It also focuses on improving rural livelihood while promoting sustainable forest management through various projects.
In view of NDF's interest in achieving tangible conservation targets and protection of forest resources in the Guinean Moist Forest, it welcomes partnerships that will bring additive values to its respective goals.
