    HASTEN: Harnessing SDG-based Agrifood System Transformation through the Empowerment of the Next-Generation of Agrifood Leadership in Africa, aims to generate transformational changes in people, processes and markets by strengthening capacities for sustainable agrifood systems transformation across Africa, through the development of new skills to cope with complex, multilevel, multi-sectoral and multistakeholder governance, SDG integration and cross-cutting themes such as inclusion, gender, youth and environmental sustainability. The project is co-led by the FAO Office of Sustainable Development Goals (OSG), FAO Regional Office for Africa (RAF), Subregional Office for Eastern Africa (SFE) and the Subregional Office for West Africa (SFW), and will be implemented in close collaboration with FAO Country Offices in Lesotho, Rwanda and Sierra Leone.

    This report presents the results of the evaluation of the project “Creating peaceful societies through women’s improved access to management of natural resources, land tenure rights and economic empowerment in Sierra Leone” (UNJP/SIL/050/PBF), jointly implemented by FAO and ILO between 2019 and 2020. The project aimed at addressing the two underlying causes of conflicts in Sierra Leone - gender discrimination and fragmented land governance - by focusing on: i) more effective and gender-inclusive land tenure governance; and ii) women’s economic empowerment through skills, knowledge, gender-sensitive financial services and organizational capacity. The project was clearly appropriate and strategic to the main peacebuilding goals and challenges in Sierra Leone. It was also clear that the project has successfully created a momentum for women and their communities at large to more confidently address conflict issues in the future. Women’s participation in design and management of income-generating economic activities was particularly successful. The evaluation makes a number of recommendations, including a follow-up of the livelihood component. Scale-up and sustainability should be the next steps for widespread mapping of family-owned lands. Providing a lighter version of the mapping software (SOLA) would help in this regard, and it could also sustain mapping at the community level after project closure.

    Family farms feed and employ two-thirds of the African population and work 62 percent of the land. Family farmers ensure the future of Africa and are at the heart of food security and sustainable food systems. The review updates the information on the situation of family farming in Sierra Leone, offers a critical look from the perspective of the different actors about the progress and challenges it faces. In particular, it makes an approach to public policies and national action plans in force or in process in the country and the importance of their implementation. In the same way, it places the producer organizations that group the farming families present at the national level, whose objective is the strengthening and resilience of family farming within the framework of sustainable agri-food systems. The country review emphasizes the Decade of Family Farming (2019–2028), and contributes substantively to Pillar 4 “Strengthening organizations of family farmers and their capacity to generate knowledge, represent their members and provide inclusive services in the urban-rural areas ”. The publication represents a transversal communicational section within the framework of the multi-stakeholder amalgam of family farming, summarizes the current situation and presents future problems. It is intended to fill the existing information gaps in rural areas. Within this framework, the Yenkasa Africa communication initiative implements a regional campaign to raise awareness on the UNDFF and promote improved communication capacities and services for family farming in Sierra Leone.
