The Liberian capital Monrovia is particularly vulnerable to climate effects, namely sea level rise and the increased frequency of high-intensity storms. This has resulted in coastal erosion and shoreline retreat, which threatens the sustainability of ecosystem services and directly impacts Monrovians’ fishery-based livelihoods of approximately 55,000 Monrovians, 46% of whom are women.
The Environmental Protection Agency of Liberia (EPA) is the Executing Entity for the Monrovia Metropolitan Climate Resilience Project (MMCRP), financed by the Green Climate Fund (GCF), through the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) and the Government of Liberia (GoL). The core aim of the Project is to build the long-term climate resilience of coastal communities in
Liberia by both addressing immediate adaptation priorities and creating an enabling environment for up-scaling coastal adaptation initiatives to other parts of Monrovia and Liberia.
