According to MIA authority the meeting was held in Gbao administrative district in Grand Gedeh County, bringing together several persons including some officials from the two county administrations as well as traditional leaders.
The meeting is in continuation of peace talks between the two counties since the civil war which created bitter feelings among the citizens of Nimba and Grand Gedeh Counties.
During the meeting, citizens of the two counties shared, exchanged and identified challenges as well as found solutions together that would foster total harmony.
Deputy Internal Affairs Minister for Administration, Varney A. Sirleaf, headed the meeting in Grand Gedeh County, while Carter Center represented by its Chief of Party Mr. Pewee Flomoku co-facilitated the meeting.
The Carter Center, in collaboration with the Ministry of Internal Affairs (MIA), the National Council of Chiefs and Elders (NCCEL) and other partners seeks to strengthen local governance by providing regular training on the Rule of Law, Dispute Resolution, Leadership, and inclusive governance to local and National Chiefs, women and youth.
These approaches are then applied through The Carter Center's supported town hall meetings and conflict intervention undertaken by chiefs at both local and nationals levels.
