Liberia Transition Multi-Partner Trust Fund Terms of Reference
06 November 2019
The transition process in Liberia is taking place against a background of structural fragility. Protecting the gains of the past 14 years will be critical to ensuring that the trajectory of sustaining peace is consolidated and advanced following the departure of the UN peacekeeping mission (UNMIL) in 2018. The Liberia peace building plan (2017) outlines the current context of fragility by demonstrating the extent to which the root causes of the country’s 14-year civil war remain unaddressed. Notwithstanding the many gains, public institutional reforms are urgently required, with an emphasis on the effective implementation of the national legislative agenda. Recent assessments show that land disputes, corruption, boundary disputes and concession-related tensions continue to be the main triggers of violence.
