Within the CDG Pillar, activities of the Governance Section fall under three broad areas:

  2. Natural Resource Management - UNMIL’s strategic support and advice on the effective management of the natural resources sector – mining, agricultural plantations and forestry - for the benefit of the state, communities and investors; and
  3. Public Financial Management and Integrity – with a focus on monitoring and assessing the execution of the national budget in sectors critical to UNMIL’s transition and strategic support to the work of institutions promoting transparency and integrity issues that contribute to durable peace and development.
