Sierra Leone


UNDP: a partner of choice

At UNDP, partnership goes beyond a mantra and is at the heart of everything we do. We offer a nearly universal presence that cuts across diverse development issues and settings. These valuable assets combined with our long legacy of trust have made us a global partner of choice.

Sierra Leone is currently implementing UN Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework (UNSDCF) 2020-2023, which is the medium-term results framework that describes how the UN system in Sierra Leone will support the implementation of Sierra Leone’s Medium-Term National Development Plan (MTNDP) 2019-2023 and the progress towards the achievement of the 17 global Sustainable Development Goals while ensuring that no-one is left behind.

Our Country Programme Document (CPD) 2020-2023 was created through a participative process with contributions from all UN agencies operating in Sierra Leone, Government, international development partners, non-governmental and civil society organizations, and private sector entities.

UNDP remains committed to working even more closely with partners across all sectors.
