Activist Lauds Gov’t “Progress” In Natural Resource Governance  

By Robert Dixon

MONROVIA, August 22 (LINA) - A former Senior Landscape Convener at the Sustainable Trade Initiative in Monrovia has said Liberia has made “significant progress” towards the governance of natural resources under the Unity Party-led government.

Silas Siakor made the statement at the end of one-day forum organized by Action Aid Liberia held at the University of Liberia auditorium over the weekend.

The forum discussed natural resource governance with critical reflection on Liberia’s political economy and governance in pre-elections and post-UNMIL periods.

Siakor, along with other key speakers, highlighted national issues that center around the transformation and development of Liberia's natural resources sector.

He indicated that government has been able to put some mechanisms into place to effectively regulate the natural resource sector.

He said that Liberia has a long way to go in order to ensure that majority of the people benefit from money generated from sector.

Speaking earlier, the Manager for Women’s Rights at Action Aid International, Korto Williams, stressed that the power analysis dialogue is an ongoing conversation with activists, students, youth groups, civil society and the public aimed at discussing problems confronting the nation.

Williams pointed out that the power analysis dialogue brings together speakers from in and out of Liberia to speak on national issues and proffer a way forward in the quest to enhance Liberia's growth and development.
