On the 7th of May, SIPU's project GROW Liberia was officially launched in Monrovia. FrontPageAfrica reported on the event.

GROW- Liberia is a five-year Sida-funded landmark  "Making Markets Work for the Poor" (M4P) programme, which seeks to contribute to sustainable peace and poverty reduction through inclusive and integrated economic development in Liberia. Its objective is substantially increased incomes and employment opportunities for a large number of poor women, men and youth, created through market development in agriculture. The expected outcome is increased business activities, trade and value addition through increased capacity and competitiveness of smallholder farmers and related micro and small enterprises. The expected outputs are systemic changes in market systems relevant for smallholder farmers and related micro and small enterprises in terms of 1) Improved market functions 2) Improved performance of support services and 3) Improved business environment.

The programme is implemented by a consortium consisting of Adam Smith International (leading party), SIPU, MercyCorps and Springfield Centre.

The two-hour launch, which celebrates the first year of successful interventions in the vegetable, cocoa, oil palm and rubber sectors, was attended by the Minister of Finance and Development Planning, the Honorable Amara Konneh, as Keynote Speaker.
