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.
UNDP supports the National Electoral Commission of Sierra Leone to hold elections that are not only technically sound and sustainbale, but also inclusive - in particular, of women and persons with disabilities.
This project helps judiciary and justice chain institutions to develop bail and sentencing regulations, to ensure adequate guidance for the Judges, Magistrates and legal practitioners in the dispensation of justice. It also supports the introduction of electronic criminal case management in Sierra Leone, enabling the judiciary to track court cases.
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.
