Focus on agriculture in Liberia

Liberian civil society and small farmers are calling for the government to fully implement the Maputo Declaration, which calls on all African governments to allocate 10 percent of their Budgets to the agricultural sector in an effort to achieve 6 percent average annual growth needed in the Comprehensive African Agriculture Development Program (CAADP). The CAADP is a strategic framework developed by African leaders to restore agricultural growth, develop rural economies, and enhance food security. Idasa and the Foundation for Human Rights and Democracy (FOHRD) in Liberia held a workshop on “Applied Budget Analysis Training Forum” to facilitate this process.
