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.
