What we do in Liberia
A member of the Open Government Partnership since 2012, Liberia’s government has committed to measures aimed at improving both government transparency and citizen participation in governance processes.
However, despite these actions, public perceptions of government corruption remain high. Liberia remains at the top of the Global Corruption Barometer’s list of most corrupt countries, and there are series concerns around government accountability in its dealings with the extractive industry, its land ownership processes, budgeting and procurement.
Making All Voices Count is working with government, civil society, researchers, NGOs and technology actors in Liberia to increase government’s accountability to the public. Our projects support opportunities for increased citizen engagement in governance processes and help government to listen and respond.
