On Wednesday, Through the Monrovia City Corporation (MCC), Liberia’s Government launched a Project named Monrovia Grow Green (MonGrow Green) to address the climate crisis and improve the beautification of Monrovia.

The project which is intended to address flooding and sea erosion in targeted areas was launched on behalf of the City’s Mayor, Jefferson Koijee by Monrovia City Corporation Deputy Director for Internal Operations, Mr. Cain Prince Andrews.

In his remark during the launch, Mr. Andrews stated that the project focuses to transform Monrovia into a more safe, cleaner, greener, and inclusive city by participatory climate change mitigation and adaptation interventions.

He also highlighted that the Monrovia City Corporation will work with migrants and displaced communities to plant 20,000 mangrove and coconut trees across the City, which will serve as four main purposes of balancing the soil, providing a green and shady environment and also absorb excess groundwater and carbon emissions.

The project which is supported by the Mayors Migration Council as stated by the Deputy Director would create opportunities for city initiatives that focus on building their resilience against the climate change crisis.

In the end, he urged the selected communities to take ownership of the project, especially the 150 beneficiaries.
