Since 2009 the Government of Liberia (GoL) has been taking steps towards establishing strong co-ordination, regulation and governance for the sector; as well as initiating steps towards raising the resources required to respond to the sector needs, strengthening service delivery and supporting information and data management. In 2012, a WASH sector capacity needs assessment was undertaken under the auspices of the Capacity Development Task Force (CD-TF) of the National Water Sanitation and Hygiene Promotion Committee (NWSHPC). A wide range of sector and other GoL, Civil Society (CSO), private sector, media, educational establishment and development partners have been involved in the assessment process. The analytical framework that was used for the assessment was developed around the entry points and outcomes identified in the Liberia National Capacity Development Strategy and the strategic outcomes and results expected from the Sector Strategic Plan, 2012-17. In alignment with these documents capacity development has been considered from the perspective of human capital, institutional capacity and the enabling environment. The findings from this assessment have been used to develop a WASH Sector Capacity Development Plan, 2012-17, with costing and a monitoring, reporting and evaluation framework. (Link)
