The United Nations Development Program (UNDP) has renewed its commitments to support Liberia’s readiness for the carbon market globally and has charged civil society organizations to serve as voices of marginalized society to help the realization of the country’s Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs).

UNDP Liberia Resident Representative a.i. Louis Kuupen said active participation of CSOs towards the implementation of the NDCs will help Liberia in the preservation of its national resources, most specifically its forest resources, which are of great social good to the rest of the world.

“Discussions around the implementation of the NDCs are of critical importance to the nation as their outcomes would help the government make informed decisions,” said Kuukpen. 

He spoke on Tuesday, February 27, 2024, at a one-day national dialogue on NDCs with a focus on the forest target. The national dialogue, which followed a series of consultations including a regional dialogue held in Gbarnga, Bong County in November of last year, is part of an effort led by the National Civil Society Council of Liberia (NCSCL) with support from UNDP to help Liberia achieve its goals outlined in the NDCs with emphasis on the forest sector.
