Legal Authorities Governing Transportation Infrastructure in Liberia: A Desk Stu

This desk study identifies and describes key Liberian legal and regulatory requirements related to the construction of a trans-Liberian railroad and a port facility. The Environmental Law Institute identified potential requirements for the construction of a rail line assuming either the use of existing rail track or a new line parallel to the existing line, with the possibility of the line running in or near the Nimba Mountains. The research for this study involved the review of laws and regulations of Liberia governing environmental, natural resources, social, and cultural issues, as well as those relating to property ownership and business practices.
