Our Projects

Economic Transformation

UNDP supports Liberia's national development agenda within the framework of achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. It works closely with national institutions through the Ministry of Finance and Development Planning (MFDP) and local communities to promote, advocate and contribute to good governance, peace and security. Specifically, our work focuses on engendering national initiatives and strategies that help facilitate long-term development transformation in the lives of the people of Liberia. We offer global perspectives, complementary support and ideas on strategic development projects and capacity building in continued efforts to promote and protect human rights and improve environmental management. UNDP’s program interventions 2013-2017 are structured around two broad pillars;  Governance and Public Institutions (GPI) and Sustainable Economic Transformation (SET), in line with the priorities of the Government of Liberia (GOL) as enshrined in its Vision 2030 and Agenda for Transformation (AfT).

Governance and Public Institutions

Democratic Governance

This programme takes a broad view of governance to constitute the mechanisms, processes, relations, and institutions through which citizens and groups speak about their interests, exercise their rights, mediate their differences and build consensus on shared interests. It assists the government and citizens realize their development aspirations through state institutions that work; a civil service that pays a decent wage; a justice system that operates independently; a Legislature that makes laws and controls executive power, and a free media that gives citizens information that empowers them, among others. Specifically, the Programme focuses on four linked elements that reinforce the basic foundations of governance while targeting a substantially expanded role for women in each area of engagement, in particular their participation in positions of authority and decision-making at the national and local levels.
