The National Elections Commission and United Nations Development Programme, supported by international partners from the European Union, Sweden, Ireland and Canada are working to strengthen the logistics and operational capacity of staff during training being held between 10-12 April 2018.
Over a two-day period, the participants in the training reviewed the present logistics and warehousing practices of the National Elections Commission, identified best practices in this field and highlighted the need for improvements in the system currently employed.
This event is part of the support to the National Elections Commission, provided by United Nations Development Programme in partnership with European Union, Sweden, Ireland and Canada through the election support project with a fund of USD 16.6 million. In 2018 the project is planning to support the rehabilitation of warehousing space across Liberia, including revising the asset management system, as part of the wider goals of strengthening the overall capacity of the National Elections Commission.
Support to the 2015-2018 Liberian Electoral Cycle project was established in order to strengthen the capacity of the National Election Commission (NEC) to successfully carry out electoral process within the 2015-2018 electoral cycle. Among other objectives, it introduced modern administrative systems and procedures, enhanced communications and public outreach, supported voter registration and election results management process. In addition, the project seeks to enhance the participation of women in the elections and in political activities, support civic and voter education and strengthen NEC’s capacity to engage with the stakeholders and resolve electoral disputes. The project is supported by the European Union (10.85 million USD), Sweden (2,757,039 USD), UNDP (1 million USD), Canada (749,625 USD) and Ireland (568,828 USD).
