Sierra Leone: Linking Farmers to Markets

In Sierra Leone, roads are the crux of many farmers' livelihoods. WFP and partners are providing assistance to repair damaged roads, allowing farmers to sell their produce on local markets. 

Overview

Although Sierra Leone has abundant natural resources, the decade-long civil war severely devastated the country’s economy, destroyed infrastructure and caused large-scale human suffering. The global recession has hampered recent progress, which has decreased incoming capital. The country ranks 177 out of 187 countries on the 2013 UNDP Human Development Index.
