Sierra Leone: EU gives US$6m for decentralization process
The European Union (EU) has provided a grant of US$6 million to support the Sierra Leonean government’s decentralization programme.
The EU’s contribution is an additional support to scale up decentralized delivery of basic services towards which the World Bank had approved US$26 million in December last year.
The latest EU funds will enable Sierra Leone launch the second phase of the Decentralized Service Delivery Program (DSDP) worth thirty two million in total.
As WADR’s Freetown correspondent Mohamed Konneh reports, this latest funding will help boost Sierra Leone’s 19 local district Councils.
