River Gee County is situated in the south-eastern part of Liberia, bordering with Cote d’Ivoire. Most of the county is covered with forests. The population density of 3-26 persons per square kilometre is one of the lowest of Liberia. Although no official demographic figures exist for the county’s population, the total number is estimated by local authorities to be around 100,000 inhabitants; however, recently International Committee of Red Cross (ICRC) estimated the size of the population of the county to be around 76,000. More accurate figures will be available in August when a comprehensive population study undertaken by the Danish Refugee Council (DRC) will be completed. The county’s major ethnic group is the Grebo people, who can also be found in Maryland, Sinoe and Grand Kru.

River Gee is one of the neglected counties of Liberia. Far away from the capital and from the major economical centres, the last county created in Liberia lacks the basic infrastructures that could allow local administration to work at minimal acceptable standards. More worrying is the limited availability and access to basic services for the local population. Similarly, despite the abundance of natural resources the local economy basically stays at subsistence level.
