Improving Electricity Access in Monrovia, Liberia

Overview

A decade and a half of successive armed conflicts in Liberia has devastated the national infrastructure, leaving access to basic services like electricity at practically zero. GPOBA is supporting a project aimed at rehabilitating Monrovia’s power supply and rapidly expanding the roll-out of the network to a low-income households. Using an output-based aid scheme, the project will help make access to electricity more affordable by subsidizing the connection cost and more inclusive by explicitly targeting the poor.
