  • Building the Adaptive Capacity of Water Supply Services to Climate Change in Sierra Leone

    The Building the Adaptive Capacity of Water Supply Services to Climate Change in Sierra Leone Project seeks to enhance the abilities of key decision-makers in the public and private sectors involved in water provision to plan for and respond to climate change risks.

  • Production and Utilisation of Charcoal through Innovative Technologies

    The Energy Efficient Production and Utilisation of Charcoal through Innovative Technologies and Private Sector Involvement Project seeks to complement the Sierra Leone National Energy Policy and Sierra Leone National Energy Strategic Plan, established by the Government in September 2009, and ensure the provision of and access to modern energy services for improving economic growth, productivity, wealth creation and the quality of life for all Sierra Leoneans.

  •  Climate Information and Early Warning Systems

    The project on Strengthening Climate Information and Early Warning Systems for Climate Resilient Development and Adaptation to Climate Change is part of a regional initiative that includes 11 countries in Africa. The primary problem that the project seeks to address in Sierra Leone is that current climate information (including monitoring) and early warning systems are not functioning sufficiently to support adaptive capacity of local communities and key sectors. This hampers long-term planning, management and early warning activities, and adaptation to climate change impacts.

  •  Adapting to Climate Change Induced Coastal Risks in Sierra Leone

    Over 2 million people along coastal areas in Sierra Leone are expected to be at risk from predicted sea level rise. In addition to loss of properties and beaches, the consequences of coastal erosion and sea level rise include population displacements, flooding and saline intrusion, and threats to coastal aquifers, fresh water resources and agricultural water resources, undermining subsistence of local communities

  • Enabling Sustainable Livelihoods through Improved Natural Resources Governance and Economic Diversification

    The project contributes to addressing several SDGs through its cross-sectoral and holistic approach to reduce poverty and inequality by building capacity for sustainable and inclusive governance of natural resources, productive employment, inclusiveness, and mainstreaming gender equality. The project will also have a positive impact on vulnerable groups most affected by the Ebola crisis.
