PWYP Liberia was launched in August 2006 and has focused on a wide range of issues, not least supporting the implementation of EITI and disseminating the data contained within EITI reports. The coalition continues to play an important role in this area, helping to make the reports accessible to Liberia’s citizens. PWYP Liberia trains journalists to write more often, and more accurately, about natural resource issues.
The coalition supports local communities to help them benefit from natural resources and protect them from the harmful effects of extraction. PWYP Liberia currently campaigns to promote transparency and accountability in the implementation of Free, Prior and Informed Consent and to increase the decision making power of community members in how extractive projects in their locality are managed. Over the coming years, the coalition will also monitor the impact of extractive projects on local communities.
