Sierra Leone - Emergency Food Security Assessment, June 2015


Sierra Leone - Emergency Food Security Assessment, June 2015

This evaluation has been carried out to assess the food security situation in both the affected and non-affected communities in the aftermath of the Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) outbreak, and it took place just a couple of months after the country began to experience a decline in the incidence of new cases.
However, the findings of the survey suggest that the international and local trade disruptions and the ban on public gatherings imposed by the Government to contain the spread of the virus adding to the fear of both contracting the virus and of social discrimination, have affected the livelihoods of Sierra Leoneans at the detriment of their food security situation without distinction.
