This paper emphasises that crafting a NUP for Liberia must directly involve all actors responsible for urban affairs – central government, local authorities, ministries and agencies, civil society, private sector and academic institutions. This participatory spirit resonates with the proposals by major global agendas such as the African Agenda 2063 Framework which advocates, as one of its seven aspirations, development that is people driven and relies on their potential.
Consultations have been, and will continue to be, organised to ensure wide stakeholder participation to safeguard an open, collaborative, peaceful policy-making process.
The Paper calls on all stakeholders to collaborate closely and effectively with the Government of Liberia to develop and implement this NUP.
