A comprehensive investigation was conducted into the overall condition of the Liberian environment. It was the first assessment of this kind to have occurred on a national scale in Liberia, following the years of civil unrest. This resulted in establishing a baseline for monitoring environmental conditions and trends. Liberia’s first State of the Environment Report was published, June 2007.

Liberia Poverty Reduction Strategy
An Environment Working Group (EWG), chaired by the EPA, has been established under Liberia’s Poverty Reduction Strategy (PRS) to mainstream environmental issues across all sectors. The EWG composed of 32 members, including government and non-governmental stakeholders as well as international organisations, prepared an Environmental Strategy Brief to prioritise the key environmental challenges and actions to be carried out under the PRS from 2008-2011.
Follow-up steps include developing poverty-environment indicators and costing of interventions. The Joint UNDP-UNEP Poverty Environment Facility is providing technical assistance to support the work of the EWG. The Poverty Reduction Strategy (PRS) for Liberia is being coordinated by the Ministry of Finance and was launched in August 2007 and is due to be completed by March 2008.
