Sierra Leone

     日本語

Sierra Leone

The decade-long civil war from 1991 until 2002 displaced more than 1 million people, and left the country's infrastructure in a devastating state. After the end of the civil war, Sierra Leone held peaceful national election twice. Such political stability and peace are fundamental for the sustainable development of Sierra Leone, and the country is now moving onto the development phase after the reconstruction phase. Assured by a strong economic growth over the past few years, the Government of Sierra Leone launched Agenda for Prosperity (2013-2017) with a vision of becoming a middle income country by 2035. On the other hand, various challenges still exist, such as heavy economic dependence on iron ore and diamond, fragile administration, high unemployment rate among youth, weak infrastructure, and significantly low Human Development Index (ranked 177th among 187 countries). To support Sierra Leone in its effort, JICA's cooperation is primarily focused on: 1) infrastructure development, and 2) human capital development (agriculture, health, and education).

JICA projects in Sierra Leone are under the responsibility of the JICA Ghana Office.
