ABOUT OUR WORK

Liberia About out work

Liberia is a country in West Africa bordered by Sierra Leone, Guinea, Côte d’Ivoire, and the Atlantic Ocean. Liberia has emerged from a civil conflict in 2003. While the country has remained peaceful since 2003, it remains fragile because the main causes of conflict; land disputes, gender inequality, governance around concessions, ethnic and religious differences, youth unemployment, citizenry participation of governance system have not been fully addressed. Despite Liberia’s abundant natural wealth including; iron ore, diamonds, gold, fertile soil, fisheries, and forestry, the country is among the world’s poorest. In line with its normative, programmatic and coordination mandate, UN Women supports the government and people of Liberia to fulfill the country’s international obligations to promote the equal participation rights of women including empowerment and girls in the country. UN Women has worked strategically in Liberia since 2004.
