|Overview : |
Liberia Water Governance is currently remained characterized by a multitude of fragmented and uncoordinated responsibilities split between different ministries and public agencies, against a background of gravely inadequate water and sanitation service delivery both in rural and urban communities. However, framework for more coherent institutional structure, Water Supply and Sanitation Policy (2009) was approved; which recommended the establishment of the National Water Resources and Sanitation Board (NWRSB) established in 2015 and chaired by the Office of the President of Liberia with line water ministries as members, and the National Water Supply and Sanitation Commission (WSSC) established in 2017 by an Act of Legislature; signed by the President of Liberia and printed into hand bills.
Prior this to, Government of Liberia and partners in 2011 jointly developed Liberia WASH compact under the supervision of Sanitation and Water for All (SWA). The compact was approved by the President of Liberia in 2012.

1. Establish and strengthen institutional capacity
