As the Administration of President George M. Weah prepares to roll-out its Pro-Poor Agenda for Prosperity and Development, it can rely on an abundant body of work and research and will not have to re-invent the wheel. Since the end of the war, there have been many studies and strategies on how to resolve some of the development challenges the country has faced throughout the ages. One such contribution is an anthology of research papers presented at a development conference organized by the US Agency for International Development (USAID, Liberia), the Embassy of Sweden and the University of Liberia on February 1-2, 2017 in Monrovia.
Authors in the Anthology hail from government, private sector, civil society organization and academia. They also transcend borders, with contributions from Columbia University, the African Development Bank, the Tony Blair Institute for Global Change, the University of Liberia, the Ministry of Education and think tanks around the world and in age groups. Authors range from Professor Elwood Dunn of the Center for Policy Studies to Dr. Robtel Neajai Pailey and the late K. Abdulai Kamara and Cllr. Kwame Clement, amongst many deserving writers and researchers.
