Evaluation of the World Bank Group's investment climate programs : Liberia case study - some positive results achieved in a complex environment (English)

This country case study is part of a larger impact evaluation effort that reviews investment climate (IC) reform programs implemented by the World Bank Group (WBG) in Burkina Faso, Liberia, Rwanda, Sierra Leone and South Sudan. This follows a study carried out in 2011 across the same countries. The purpose of the evaluation is to update, expand, and deepen the initial analysis within the framework of the earlier study, in order to gain a better understanding of the impact and sustainability of the IC reform activities implemented by the WBG.
