New book aims to guide Sierra Leone’s economic future

The IGC is pleased to announce the publication of a new book examining the economic challenges facing Sierra Leone.

Edited by the IGC Sierra Leone Country Director Omotunde E. G. Johnson, Economic challenges and policy issues in early twenty-first-century Sierra Leone, comprises 14 chapters divided into five key sections:

  • Introduction
  • Macroeconomics and financial sector issues
  • Private sector development and export promotion
  • The real sectors
  • Governance and social services

The book examines a variety of topics at the heart of Sierra Leone’s future, including girls’ education, food security, microfinance and developing an export economy. Johnson hopes that “”the book will turn out to be of lasting value to Sierra Leoneans as they wrestle with the economic development challenges in the next two to four decades of the century.””

Hard copies of the book are available to purchase on Amazon, with all proceeds going to a Sierra Leone-based charity. Alterntatively, individual PDF chapters can be downloaded free of charge from the IGC website.
