• Assessment of Development Results
    Jul 23, 2015

    This is the first ADR assessment of UNDP’s contribution to Sierra Leone and covers the period 2008-2012. Specifically, the ADR focused on the previous 2008- 2010 Country Programme Document (CPD) (which was extended by the UNDP Executive Board until 2012), and covered as much as possible of the ongoing 2013-2014 CPD. The findings and recommendations of the ADR were discussed at a stakeholder workshop held in Freetown on 8 July 2014 attended by almost 70 stakeholders who shared their comments on the report and provided feedback on the role and future potential contribution of UNDP in the context of the next country programme.

The report states that while income poverty is 52.9%, 72.7% of Sierra Leoneans are multidimensional poor, among the highest in the world and comes amidst the potentially devastating Ebola health shock.
