The Agriculture sector is a significant contributor to the economy in terms of employment and foreign exchange earnings, and a primary determinant of nutrition, education, poverty reduction, and rural transformation.
In 2011, Liberia prepared a Comprehensive Africa Agriculture Development Program (CAADP) post- Compact investment plan, and subsequently obtained a CAADP technical review report. It is within this pro-poor, conflict-sensitive context that the LASIP is concentrating its actions and efforts on smallholders with a focus on food crops (rice, cassava, and vegetables) productivity enhancement, value chains development (including market access), and capacity strengthening. In line with the Government of Liberia investment programme, the EU’s commitment to addressing food insecurity in Liberia will continue under its Food Security Thematic Program (FSTP), in particular through its Strategic Priority No3 of Addressing Food Security for the poor and vulnerable in fragile situations.
