It is a reality that providing adequate housing to millions of low income households globally and particularly in urban centers is one of the greatest challenges facing present-day society. In Liberia, meeting this challenge would require constructing a new dwelling every five minutes until 2030.
The Habitat Country Programme Document for Liberia outlines the main objectives and priorities for UN-HABITAT. In collaboration with the Government and other UN Agencies, the overall aim of the UN-HABITAT Country Programme Documents is to promote the Habitat Agenda. UN-HABITAT plays an active role in urban development and policy formulation.
Through partnerships with various ministries, UN-HABITAT has assisted in identifying key urban issues and areas of support to improve the urban situation in Liberia.
