LR Parliament



Introduction

The "Capitol Building" faces the President's mansion in the government quarter of Capitol Hill, paying tribute to the fact that the Liberian government is modelled on that of the USA. The design of the Capitol itself, which was partly damaged by a fire in 2013, also mimics its American counterpart. Despite these monumental buildings, the government is contemplating to move the capital away from the coast due to climate change and a growing population.
