The port authority of Liberia called on port stakeholders and environmental organizations to form a stronger partnership with it to deal with current and future environmental challenges. The Managing Director, Madam Matilda Wokie Parker, told a seminar organized and hosted by the port authority in August that the time is now for such a collaboration to begin. She told the gathering that the National Port Authority (NPA) has already begun a strategic in-house environmental sensitization program with its workers and port users. She said it is necessary for stakeholders to work together in order to tackle any future environmental challenge such as an oil spill. The seminar was held under the theme: “Going Green; NPA Collaborating towards Environmental Sustainability.” The NPA also released the port’s 25-year Master Plan (MP), which guides the development and growth of the NPA’s existing four ports and the construction of additional ports in Grand Cape Mount and Lofa counties, amongst others. The monetary value of the MP is about US$2 billion.
