Liberia

Africa

Liberia is currently in the process of working on its TNA. It has completed its sectors and technology prioritization process and is currently about to complete its second reports (Barrier Analysis and Enabling Frameworks).

Liberia is a West African nation bordering Sierra Leone, Guinea, Côte d’Ivoire and the Atlantic Ocean. Nearly half of Liberia’s area is covered by forest, and around 40% of the Upper Guinea Forest falls within Liberia’s borders. Among the key vulnerabilities to climate change are extreme weather events, which severely affect food security, as traditional farming seasonal practices become unpredictable, while sea level rises and erosion are affecting infrastructure and the livelihoods of coastal communities.

Liberia’s TNA contributes to the following Sustainable Development Goals:
