Until recently,the Liberian capital Monrovia did not have a single official waste dump. For many years,the country was in the grip of a civil war ...that destroyed much of the city's infrastructure and claimed the lives of some 200,000 people. For the past five years,there has been a fragile peace,but many traces of the war remain. One year ago,a waste disposal project was finally started in Monrovia. The project is now creating many badly needed jobs.

Gabriel Fernandez, Liberia's National Social Protection Coordinator, says his country has made economic gains since its civil war but lack of job skills force many workers into informal sector jobs and "vulnerable employment." Liberia has just emerged from 14 years of civil war, so the state is still fragile. The country has made tremendous economic improvements under its new president, particularly achieving debt cancellation and creating institutions to help job creation. However, Liberia still faces a major youth unemployment problem. Many young workers are unskilled and lost out on their educational opportunities because of the civil war, and are often forced into informal sector jobs. Nearly 90% of Liberia's workforce is in the informal sector, with another 77.9% in "vulnerable em...

Liberia is one of the countries in the world that uses child labor in rubber production. It’s the country’s largest export and largest employer. On its rubber plantations, many children work long hours, under dangerous conditions. They're denied the right to a basic education. A project funded by the U.S. Department of Labor (ARCH project) is working to remove children from this hazardous work and put them in school. Why should America continue to invest in child labor elimination projects in Africa?

Presidential candidates for the October 10th Liberia elections have promised to revive the economy and provide jobs – subjects that topped the second debate on Monday. A fall in the prices of iron ore, one of the country's biggest exports has pushed the economy to a crisis.

ArcelorMittal has helped Liberia to jumpstart its economy after being devastated by 14 years of civil conflict. Our Liberian iron ore mining project represents an important part of our business strategy. It is an opportunity to show how responsible and transparent business practices can benefit both the company and the host country, bringing about mutual understanding and trust, which in turn can further help to improve stability. Following a review of the Mineral Development Agreement (MDA) with the new Government of Liberia that was concluded on December 28, 2006, which called for an investment that would exceed US$ 1.0 billion, we set out on the task of rebuilding the country's mining infrastructure. Since the start of construction operations in 2006, ArcelorMittal Liberia has created...
'Liberia, "land of the free," was founded by free African-Americans and freed slaves from the United States in 1820. The True Whig Party dominated all sectors of Liberia from independence in 1847 until April 12, 1980, when indigenous Liberian Master Sergeant Samuel K. Doe seized power in a coup d'etat. On December 24, 1989, a small band of rebels led by Doe's former procurement chief, Charles Taylor and his National Patriotic Front rebels, invaded Liberia from Cote d'Ivoire. From 1989 to 1996 one of Africa's bloodiest civil wars ensued, claiming the lives of more than 200,000 Liberians and displacing a million others into refugee camps in neighboring countries. By 2003, armed groups called "Liberians United for Reconciliation and Democracy" (LURD) and "Movement for Democracy ...

This truly one of the most dangerous jobs I have ever been on. My partner and I lived with head hunters for ten days. Traveling over 2000 miles in a jeep all over the Ivory Coast in Liberia. I was happy to get out alive. It is that kind of story that ledges are made out of.
