New EU support for decentralisation in Liberia
Today, the EU has announced new support for a development project in Liberia which will promote local governance through activities such as on-the-job training and coaching, study and exchange visits, as well as office rehabilitation and refurbishment and peer-to-peer monitoring to encourage local participation.
The objective of the new project is to contribute to the development of the country so that all Liberians, independently of where they live, will have access to services, benefit from inclusive economic growth and participate in political life. The total support from the EU amounts to €5.5 million. The programme will be implemented by the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the Governance Commission with support from the United Nations Development Programme.
