Overview

What We Do

UNDP supports Liberia's national development agenda-the Agenda For Transformation (AFT). 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.

Our Goals

UNDP works closely with national institutions and local communities to promote, advocate and contribute to good governance, peace and security. In Liberia, UNDP plays a strong, supportive and coordinated role, with the UN Integrated Mission in Liberia, the United Nations Mission in Liberia (UNMIL) and other agencies in promoting and putting into practice the principles of “Working Together” and One UN approach.

Voters' Roll Update

The Voters' Roll Update Exercise was conducted by the National Elections Commission with Support from UNDP. The aim was to provide an opportunity to new eligible voters to get their names registered as well as give chance to others whose locations have changed to update their information.more
