Facilitating the Development of Sierra Leone’s Social Protection Strategy
Developing a strong national social protection system and delivering quality social protection services is a priority of the Government of Sierra Leone. The revised national social protection policy launched in January 2020 set out the goal to ‘establish a gender-sensitive and age-appropriate framework for the protection of the most poor and vulnerable, and to minimise risks of others sliding into poverty through a minimum social protection floor for all Sierra Leonean citizens’. CGA Technologies was contracted to support the development of an integrated national social protection strategy to achieve this goal.
CGA provided technical assistance to facilitate the development of an integrated comprehensive five-year social protection strategy and an implementation plan for Sierra Leone.
Technical assistance included providing support to a Development Pathways team to conduct a national consultation process involving key national social protection stakeholders; coordination and facilitation of consultation activities with government and international development agencies and workshops; support and contributing to a literature review, project reports and development of the strategy
