What We Do
UNDP partners with people at all levels of society to help build nations that can withstand crisis, and drive and sustain the kind of growth that improves the quality of life for everyone. On the ground in 177 countries and territories, we offer global perspective and local insight to help empower lives and build resilient nations. UNDP Sierra Leone is committed to assisting the Government of Sierra Leone to improve the lives of its citizens, especially the poorest and most vulnerable, and to ensure a future that offers equality, dignity and opportunity for all.
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 good governance, peace and prosperity. A valued, trusted and reliable development partner of and adviser to the Government of Sierra Leone, UNDP’s work focuses on transformative initiatives that support the consolidation of peace and help facilitate the transition to long-term development within the framework of the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and the country’s development agenda. As Sierra Leone constructs its own development solutions, UNDP offers complementary ideas for strategic development projects and capacity building in support of continued efforts to eradicate pockets of extreme poverty, expand employment opportunities, increase gender equality, reverse the spread of HIV/AIDS, promote and protect human rights and improve environmental management, amongst others.

All these timelines will have to be rigorously met in order for the elections not to slip. Adherence to the electoral timeline is a top national priority, as well as for the Development Partners.” Our Resident Representative, Mr. Sunil Saigal, admonished first electoral cycle steering committee last Friday in Freetown.
