This policy narrative on urban and peri-urban agriculture (UPA) in Liberia is based on a situation
analysis of UPA in Greater Monrovia, Tubmanburg and Gbarnga, facilitated by Welthungerhilfe, CARE Liberia and RUAF, under their UPA programmes (EU funded).
The situation analysis was undertaken by core teams of representatives from major stakeholders
in these cities (called “Local Facilitating Teams”) who jointly analysed existing information
on urban agriculture: mapping of land use, major farming systems, stakeholders and related policies (the latter supported by the Liberian Institute for Public Administration).
