The National Civil Society Council of Liberia say the civil society of Liberia will fully support the outcomes of the National Vision Conference.
The Council said it seriously takes the duties and responsibilities assigned civil society by President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and Government of Liberia.
Meanwhile, with support from the European Commission in Liberia through International Alert, the Council carried out a three-day strategic planning process in Monrovia from Thursday 13 to Saturday 15 December 2012.
The goal of the strategic planning was to develop three years Strategic Plan that guides the running and operations of the Council.
The strategic planning coincided with the climax of the National Vision Conference, where civil society was assigned among others, the duties of dissemination of the national vision 2030 and relevant documents; constitute a committee to work with the Ministry of Education to identify local language to be included in the national curriculum to be taught as national language in the school system.
The Council, members of civil society and youth sector believe the strategic planning process over the three days (13-15 December 2012) created a unique opportunity to align duties acquired by civil society from the National Vision 2030 conference to regular civil society interventions over the next three years 2012-2015.
The Council believes that the decision by the government and people of Liberia to develop, adopt and implement a national vision that will guide the future of the country is a strategic decision that will enhance the efforts toward poverty reduction; infrastructure, social, political and economic development.
The Council said the vision and its full implementation will enhance sustainable peace and national security.
The council has meanwhile called on all Liberians to support efforts aimed at the full implementation and realization of the national vision and supporting instruments such as national reconciliation roadmap and Agenda for Transformation.
