Promoting Human Development through Shared Growth

A Special focus on Infrastructure and Agriculture


The explicit goal of the LHDR 2010 is to supplement the vision contained in the Liberia’s Poverty Reduction Strategy (PRS) as a prosperous, productive nation that is at peace. Over time, the GoL has been moving progressively to a longer-term strategy of reconstruction and development that began with a 150-day plan. Following that, it adopted the interim PRS (iPRS) and recently formulated and began implementing a full PRS. All of the Government’s programs are highly ambitious and are framed with an urgency consistent with the various pressures (to raise the rate of economic growth, kick-start development, improve welfare, and enhance security) of a country that is making the transition from years of mayhem and neglect to a more stable trajectory.
