Turning up the volume on dialogue and governance in West Africa
With a common experience of devastating conflicts in their recent past, groups from Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone had many similar stories to compare when they met recently in Bo, West Africa as part of a Governance and Transparency Fund project.
After enduring years of violence, it’s perhaps no surprise that the post-conflict issues played out across communities in the Mano River Union region of West Africa have marked similarities – the turmoil of the 1990s and early 2000s has sown a legacy of distrust, land disputes, corruption, underinvestment, and youth alienation.
We are from different districts but we’re one and the same people and with a unified voice we can help resolve our issues.
