Abstract: The transition of the WASH Sector in Liberia from a state of total destruction to being firmly on the road to recovery is an interesting story to follow. Liberia’s civil war ended ten years ago and since then there has been a remarkable improvement in the country; this improvement is due to the combined efforts of many committed actors and the partnership displayed, in particular in the WASH sector in Liberia, is commendable and worth documenting. Research has shown that the rebuilding of basic services (UN, 2009) such as water and sanitation services, and supporting country led processes (World Bank Group, 2011) such as national planning are of extreme importance in a country’s transition from fragile and conflict affected state to development and in peace and nation building.
