Guidance on Engagement Principles for the National Oil Palm Strategy and Action Plan of Liberia

18 January 2023

Agriculture is the predominant source of livelihoods for over 70% of Liberia’s population. Palm oil is one of the most important agricultural commodities for export. Together with rubber, cocoa and coffee, they account for about 34% of Liberia’s GDP. The government of Liberia has prioritised palm oil production as one of the most important industries for the future and there is interest from global companies who have committed to invest around USD 6 billion.
