REPUBLIC OF LIBERIA AGENDA FOR TRANSFORMATION - Nov 2019

Government of Republic of Liberia

Description

This development strategy, the Agenda for Transformation (AfT), is an important step toward fulfilling our government’s commitment to lift Liberians out of poverty to prosperity. The Agenda for Transformation, our medium term development strategy, is a major paradigm shift in the history of Liberia’s development. Over the past several years, our national development agenda has been confronted by unforeseen circumstances which have required us to think harder, develop new ideas, and take deliberate actions. The Lift Liberia Poverty Reduction Strategy, spanning 2008-2011, placed Liberia on the path of recovery.  Under this strategy, we have seen big, tangible gains in the areas of peace, national security, stability and infrastructure development, among others. The onus is now on all of us to consolidate these gains, extend the impact to ordinary citizens in our towns and villages and situate the country on the path of economic transformation and inclusive growth.
 
This is what the Agenda for Transformation is all about. The Agenda for Transformation was developed through a country-wide participatory process involving consultations in 154 districts of Liberia. Students, youth leaders, business communities, women’s organizations, persons with disabilities, religious and traditional leaders, farmers, teachers, health workers, and local community opinion leaders participated in these district-level discussions.
