The European Union's budget support programme for Liberia, known as a State-building Contract was signed in May 2015.

Liberia ranks 182nd out of 187 countries included in the UNDP's Human Development Report (2011). Average life expectancy is around 59 years and the adult literacy rate around 60 percent.

The overall objective of the project is to enable improved resilience of remote ethnic upland communities, in particular women, to the impact of climate variability and change, and contribute to the achievement of Millennium Development Goals 1, 3 and 7.

The project aims to support the democratic, accountable and transparent governance in Liberia by supporting electoral stakeholders and the National Elections Commission for the next years in the run up to the 2017 Presidential and legislative elections.

The main objective of this project is to contribute to secured and improved livelihoods of poor rural women and men farmers in the Northern Uplands of Laos.

Liberia's land rights and land tenure status is under revision and in 2014, a revised and updated Land Rights Act (LRA) was developed and submitted by the former Land Commission of Liberia (at present the Liberia Land Authority).
