The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) is one of the responsible UN agencies participating in the implementation of the Liberia Multi Partner Trust Fund/ Peace Building Project in Liberia. The Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (UN Human Rights) is the leading UN entity on human rights. The General Assembly entrusted OHCHR with a unique mandate to promote and protect all human rights for all people. The United Nations human rights program aims to ensure that the protection and enjoyment of human rights is a reality in the lives of all people. UN Human Rights also plays a crucial role in safeguarding the integrity of the three interconnected pillars of the United Nations – peace and security, human rights and development.

Following the closure of UNMIL in March 2018, the Office of the United Nations (UN) High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) in Liberia signed with the Government of Liberia an agreement on 1 April 2018. The agreement provides OHCHR with the mandate to promote and protect human rights through different strategies including technical cooperation arrangements, capacity building, training, awareness raising and technical assistance. Other activities include human rights monitoring, investigations, documentation and report to strengthen strategic evidenced based advocacy with government authorities and other oversight and institutional mechanism to demand for accountability, prevent impunity and promote respect for human rights and Rule of Law.
