Country Strategy Paper and National Indicative Programme for the period 2008-2013 - Liberia

Tuesday, 1 January, 2013

Fourteen years of civil war, brought on by marginalisation and economic collapse, ended with a Peace Agreement brokered in Accra in June 2003 and a two-year National Transitional Government of Liberia (NTGL). This was followed by presidential and legislature elections in late 2005 which resulted in the inauguration of the first elected female President in Africa, President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf. She launched an ambitious transitional and development programme, stating transparency and anti-corruption as the main items on her agenda.
