Workshop: Development and Transformation in Sierra Leone

Past Event Freetown, Sierra Leone From 5 Dec 2011 to 1 Dec 2011 State

At the request of President Koroma in April, a group of civil society leaders formed to organize a conference to discuss the future of Sierra Leone and to come to a consensus on the vision for Sierra Leone in 50 years. The purpose of this workshop was to craft the strategy for the main conference, slated to take place in mid-January 2012.

The five main themes of the workshop were Economic Governance, Natural Resources, Political Governance, Private Sector Development, and Social Service Delivery. Each theme had a theme leader who moderated discussions and debates prior to the conference with the general public and with the presenters at the conference.
