Liberia remains a highly food insecure country, with a “serious” state of hunger rating according to the 2012 Global Hunger Index. While the country is blessed with a climate favorable to agriculture, extensive biodiversity, and vast natural resources, decades of war and low economic and social investments have ravaged Liberia’s productive assets. Relative political stability has returned to the country since the end of the civil war in 2003, but Liberia still struggles to overcome the social, economic, and human costs of its history (WFP 2012).
