Coalition for Democratic Change
The Pro-Poor Agenda is about the people, how to strengthen their capacity to thrive; and how to draw all Liberians living at home and abroad into the national development process.
Over the next five years, addressing the basic needs of Liberians for income security, better access to basic services, and greater opportunities for self-improvement in an enabling environment that is inclusive and stable will be at the core of the pro-poor agenda.

The Pro-Poor Agenda is also about crafting a national identity
aligned to the Africa Agenda 2063 and the Economic Community
of West African States (ECOWAS) Vision 2020. What clearly
emerged from the national consultations on the future of Liberia
held in 2012 is that the tendency to bifurcate the Liberian identity
into an Americo-Liberian vs. Indigenes cleavage leaves the
“erroneous impression of two discreet communities” that need to
be reconciled for political, social, and economic, development to
take hold. But it is evident that the Liberian identity is a fusion of
values of multiple “largely patriarchal traditional societies”, different
tenets of faith, and the “influence of black settler culture”. Moreover,
new cleavages emerged out of the civil war—between the Diaspora
and those Liberians who remained at home, and between those who
were victimized and those who were the perpetrators of violence.
All these cleavages must be addressed for Liberia to go forward
successfully as a united people and a progressive nation.
