Liberia’s Voluntary National Review commenced alongside the beginnings of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. As the pandemic spread very quickly across nations of the world and of Africa, lockdowns were put in place as a containment measure. It soon became clear that the VNR process will have to be undertaken despite unprecedented challenges. This impacted the VNR process in Liberia by restricting the type and number of consultative processes. Nonetheless, with the leadership of the Ministry of Finance and Planning under the close guidance of the President’s office, the government was committed to fulfilling its mandate of completing the review process. Apart from limited virtual participation of stakeholders and detailed inputs from all government ministries, an extensive desk review was undertaken of available official documents, data, and reports. The report presents a critical analysis of institutional and systemic gaps as well as progress so far against the seventeen goals.
