USAID's Investments for Economic Development in Liberia - Dollars to Results

FY 2012 $26.3 M
FY 2013 $34.7 M
FY 2014 $36.0 M
Two-thirds of Liberians live below the poverty line and half of all households are either food insecure or vulnerable to food insecurity. Almost 40 percent of young children are chronically malnourished. Poverty, hunger, and unemployment will only decline with equitable and sustained economic growth. The key to such growth lies in agriculture, which employs 70 percent of economically active people. Rebuilding infrastructure and revitalizing the private sector will stimulate agriculture-led growth.
USAID's Economic Growth program in Liberia aims to:
- Build necessary infrastructure;
- Build a strong agricultural sector; and
- Promote private sector competitiveness.
