Title:Post-conflict food security and peace building

Geographic term:Liberia

Abstract:At least four in every ten Liberians are unable to access the adequate amount of food to meet their nutritional requirements. This state of food insecurity endures in spite of the implementation, in 2007, of the National Food Security and Nutrition Strategy. This strategy has had minimal impact on factors that enhance the demand and supply of food. These factors include unemployment; poverty; the price of Liberia's staple; population growth; the poor state of the country's transportation infrastructure; declining interest in food production as a means of livelihood; food producers' lack of access to credit and capital; and the use of traditional farming methods.
