Liberia: Cabinet to Hold Retreat

The Liberia Development Alliance (LDA) will on Friday convene a two-day Cabinet Retreat to discuss issues relating to the successful implementation of Government's new development agenda known as the Agenda for Transformation.

A Release issued by the Ministry of Finance Media Services Division says the first Cabinet Retreat under the LDA will be held at the Baptist Theological Seminary on Robertsfield Highway and will seek to conclude the Results Framework Matrix that contains the priority interventions planned for each sector over the five years implementation period of the development agenda and finalize a monitoring plan to measure development results.

According to the Release, among the objectives of the Retreat include developing an Action Plan to target interventions that are considered do-able in the first year of the development agenda, develop and finalize an integrated work plan of activities and resources framework to guide the implementation of the AfT in year one.

The Cabinet Retreat expects to bring together more than two hundred (200) Cabinet Ministers, Deputy Ministers, Senior Technocrats and Champions from the various line ministries, agencies, and commissions, development partners, private sector and civil society.

During the Retreat, working sessions to develop clear, fundable activities linked to the sector interventions and quarterly 90-day activities plan with estimated cost will also be conducted. The Monitoring &Evaluation plan will also be validated at the Retreat, where a Pillar and LDA Steering Committee meetings will be held.

The LDA, which replaces the Liberia Reconstruction and Development Committee (LRDC) structure was launched by President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf on January 23, 2013.

The LDA is the Government's most strategic forum for working with the private sector, civil society, and partners to address key issues affecting overall private sector growth and development in Liberia.
