The Government of Norway and UNDP signed an amended cost sharing agreement that will provide infrastructural support to the NPTA.
According to a UNDP release, the agreement will provide US$350,378.99 in addition to the US$465,000.00 that was provided in July 2010 to construct classrooms, dormitories, kitchens, multi-purpose utility hall, shooting range and a garage on the compound of the Academy.
The additional funding, the release said, would be used by UNDP to construct a multi-purpose hall and procure modern kitchen and sports equipment.
The agreement was signed in Monrovia by the Ambassador of Norway to Liberia, Tom Tyrihjell, who is based in Accra, Ghana, the release stated.
UNDP's Country Director Dominic Sam thanked the Norwegian Government for its critical support to Liberia's security sector reform, with specific reference to the Liberia National Police.
