    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.

    Youth represent more than half of the population of Sierra Leone and can play a critical role in the future of agriculture, however they need support to unlock their potential. Empowering Sierra Leonean youth to invest in agriculture and food systems is key to achieving sustainable food security, reducing youth unemployment, combating distress migration, and making agriculture more efficient, sustainable, and resilient.

    Creating an enabling environment for responsible investment in agriculture and food systems in Sierra Leone
    Empowering key stakeholders

    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.
