Hala Hana

Ministry of Planning and Economic Affairs, Liberia

Hala assisted Liberia’s Ministry of Planning and Economic Affairs in the development of the country’s Medium Term Growth and Development Strategy, which helped define development priorities and guide the government’s policies over the next five years.  This strategy replaces Liberia’s Poverty Reduction Strategy (PRS), which was set to expire in 2011. Hala worked on incorporating strategy specific objectives for furthering gender equality, including the objectives of creating future macro- and microeconomic policies that could permit more equitable access to resources; ensuring that women are better represented in all levels of Liberia’s security sector; reforming laws to guarantee equity in human rights for men and women; strengthening female organizations and networks; increasing access to education for girls, and many others.
