Improving governance systems

Our work in democratic governance promotes the maintenance of rule of law, access to justice, improving the efficiency and accountability of the public sector and minimizing corrupt practices. UNDP supports a more accountable and efficient government, together with a public sector that delivers quality services, while advocating for reforms and institutional capacity development in Liberia.
