Rural Renewable Energy Project in Sierra Leone: Impact evaluation report

The United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS) is supporting the Government of Sierra Leone’s (GoSL) goal of universal access to electricity by implementing the USD40+ million Rural Renewable Energy Project (RREP). RREP – funded by the UK Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO)1 – is an ambitious electrification project that aims to provide access to off-grid solar electricity in rural communities in Sierra Leone. This impact evaluation report uses data collected during surveys in 2019 and 2021 to assess the short run results of the project.
