Liberia’s Environmental Profile

Liberia institutional crisis reflected the small cohesion of a country where urban growth in the coastal area is achieved by human and natural resources depletion in the interior. Economic depression and decomposition of governance opened the way to an increased and fuzzy exploitation of natural resources and degradation of human settlements environment. With the progress of the peace process, the main goals of institutions and the Liberian society as a whole have become the enhancement of national cohesion through governance and the improvement of livelihood through economic expansion. In short, Liberia economic and social converge on the
reduction of poverty.
