* Executive Boards’ visit to Liberia * 04 Mar 2007 After 14 years of civil conflict, Liberia is moving forward on the road to recovery. To witness this encouraging trend, a delegation representing the governing bodies of UN funds and programs has spent a week in the west African nation. By seeing first hand realities on the ground, the delegation hopes to gain insight and help contribute to the country’s reconstruction. Soundbite: "We found that the Liberian people are indeed a very resilient and hopeful people although they have gone through 14 years of war they are determined to rise again and make this country all that it can be." During their joint visit, the delegates, representing the executive boards of UNICEF, the World Food Program, the UN Development Program and the UN Population Fund met with President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf. They discussed crucial priorities for the country such as unemployment, health and education. Soundbite: Sirleaf "Education is the basis for knowledge, it's the basis for capacity, it's the basis for having the capability to be able to, first of all, manage your own affairs, in your home and community and also to be a apart of the national team that's trying to rebuild the country, so education is the key to all of that." The 19-member delegation also met with government officials and representatives from civil society and the private sector. Delegation members then split into two groups to visit UN funded programs in some of the regions most devastated by the civil war including Lofa and Nimba counties, as well as the Montserrado and Bomi counties. Liberia today faces colossal challenges. More than 76 per cent of the population lives below the poverty line---earning less than one dollar a day. 85 per cent are unemployed. Although considerable work lies ahead on the road to recovery, there are now great expectations for the future. These challenges and opportunities will be reflected as the UN delegates report on their visit and share their experiences in one of Africa’s more dynamic democracies.
