World Bank Grants $ US26m to Sierra Leone
The World Bank has granted $ US26 million for the completion of the second phase of the country’s Decentralized Service Delivery Program (DSDP-2).
It is in the bid to support the government of Sierra Leone in its efforts to enhance the living conditions of its citizens.
Decentralizing delivery services in rural areas of Sierra Leone will improve access to basic health services and safe drinking water to local populations.
Prominent among Sierra Leone’s recent decentralization efforts include; a transparent, fair system of transferring funds to Local Councils, holding of regular elections, progress in community participation in governance, and innovative ways of institutionalizing public accountability.
