building alliances to mitigating global environmental challenges.

How it all

PADEV was founded in August 2016 to contribute to national development.  We are a leading national institution that builds its intervention on the collective competence of its diverse professionals.  Our cadre of staff is one of the most experienced in community based natural resource management (CBNRM) in Liberia.

Our core team comprises staff with background in Forestry, Finance, Economics, Development Communication with emphasis in Social Behavior Change Communication (SBCC), Conservation Agriculture, and Animal Science. Seventy-five (75%) of our staff worked for USAID supported projects that administered CBNRM activities in Liberia.

The current PADEV team worked extensively with the USAID funded Land Rights and Community Forestry Program (LRCFP), which supported the development of the Community Rights Law (CRL) with Respect to Forestland and its regulation, and helped to establish the initial five (5) Authorized Forest Communities (AFC).

At PADEV we focus on the bigger picture


From 2018-2020, PADEV collaboratively implemented the Tai- Grebo-Krahn-Sapo Transboundary Forest Landscape (TGKS) project. The project was funded by USAID under the West Africa Biodiversity and Climate Change (WA BiCC) program.


From 2019-2021, PADEV successfully completed a consulting services contract awarded by FDA under the Liberia Forest Sector Project (LFSP), for Awareness Raising and Support for the Establishment of Community Forest Governance Entities in over 27-communities in six (6) counties.
