Enhancing Urban and Peri-urban Agriculture
Since the end of 14 years of civil war in 2003, Liberia is experiencing a period of slow improvement, but it remains one of the world’s poorest nations with estimated two-thirds of Liberians living below the poverty line.
During the war the population concentrated in the relatively safe capital Monrovia, whose population grew to more than 1/3 of the total population of the country. Urban and peri-urban agriculture offers large potentials to improve the situation of urban habitants, but there are also serious challenges, such as unsecure land rights or litter and waste water.
