    Achieving the first two Sustainable Development Goals in Sierra Leone, the eradication of poverty and hunger by 2030, requires an additional USD 1.1 billion annual investment. Of that, more than 62 percent should target agriculture and rural development. It is important to stress that not only more investments are required, but better investments. Responsible investments in agriculture and food systems contribute to sustainable development, enhance food security and nutrition and respect human rights. FAO empowers key stakeholders in Sierra Leone to create an enabling environment for responsible investment in agriculture and food systems. This brochure presents the main interventions for key stakeholders: learning programmes for policy makers and technical government staff; capacity development events for civil society and producer organizations; and multi-stakeholder policy dialogue events. This work is supported by Germany.

    Increasing investment in agriculture and food systems is critical to achieving the first two Sustainable Development Goals, the eradication of hunger and poverty. However, not only more, also better investments are required, which sustainably benefit livelihoods, the environment and communities. Against this background, a series of capacity assessments conducted by FAO have highlighted the need for targeted activities to strengthen the commitment and capacities of key stakeholders to improve the enabling environment (institutional, legal, policy and incentives frameworks) for responsible investment in agriculture and food systems. This project, which is part of the Umbrella Programme: “Supporting Responsible Investments in Agriculture and Food Systems” (PGM/MUL/2017-2021/RAI), assists in tackling these issues by advocating for, and supporting the application of the Committee on World Food Security Principles for Responsible Investment in Agriculture and Food Systems (CFS-RAI). The CFS-RAI is the first global agreement that defines how to enhance and carry out responsible investments, in order to contribute to sustainable development, and bring benefits to all actors involved, including communities, farmers, investors and the broader environment.

    The eradication of hunger and poverty is one of the most pressing challenges of our times, as recognized by the first two Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In Sierra Leone, food insecurity affects 72 percent of the population, and most of the poor live in rural areas. The impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and lockdown measures are exacerbating the challenges to end hunger and poverty in the country. This flier highlights the pressing need for increased responsible agricultural investments in the country, the importance of abiding by the CFS Principles for Responsible Investments in Agriculture and Food Systems, and FAO's activities in the country. This work is supported by Germany and the Flexible Funding Mechanism resource partners.
