The United Nations Development Program (UNDP) on Monday, February 18, 2019 donated one ‘Toyota Land Cruiser Hard Top’ Jeep value over US$ 43,000 to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) of Liberia to enhance the works of the National Climate Change Secretariat (NCCS).
The vehicle was purchased under a project dubbed as the ‘Coastal Add Project’.
The Coastal Add Project is a Green Climate Fund (GCF), Least Developed Countries (LDCs) Development Fund support to Liberia, which among others seeks to address Monrovia Coastal Vulnerability.
The vehicle keys were presented to EPA Executive Director, Dr. Nathaniel T. Blama, Sr. by UNDP Assistant Country Director, Dorsla D. Farcarthy at a brief ceremony held at EPA office on 4th street, Sinkor.
Mr. Farcarthy said the donation of the car is part of a partnership between the two institutions and noted that the EPA and the UNDP are crucial partners in the protection of the environment.
Receiving the vehicle, Dr. Blama thanked UNDP Resident Representative, Dr. Pa Lamin Bayee for the donation and promised that the Toyota Land Cruiser will be used for the intended purpose.
He reiterated the long standing relationship between the EPA and UNDP, which according to him dated long before the establishment of the EPA.
The ceremony was attended by other staff members including EPA Deputy Executive Director, Hon. Randall M. Dobayou.
