Through sustainable waste management strategies, the United Nations Development Programme in Sierra Leone is working hard to reduce risk of flooding in slum communities in Freetown, to remove plastic waste from city drains, and provide skills training on waste management and plastic recycling.
The mobile app was developed by the Sierra Leonean technology company, iDT Labs, and funded by the US Department of State, specifically the Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs through the UNDP project, “Promoting Transparency in Sierra Leone’s Judiciary”.
From Prisons to Corrections: The United Nations Development Programme promotes institutional reform of the Sierra Leonean Correctional Services.
UNDP has had a presence in Sierra Leone since 1965, working in partnership with the Government of Sierra Leone, development partners, UN agencies, civil society and local communities, contributing to inclusive growth, sustainabily, and efficient democratic governance.
