  • INDC of Sierra Leone

    Type: 
    National Plan
    Type of National plan: 
    Country: 

    Sierra Leone's INDCs is framed in terms of desired outcomes. Through this INDC, Sierra Leone is committed to implementing specific emissions-reduction actions, such as policies or mitigation actions like advancing a feed-in tariff for renewable energy technologies, phasing out fossil fuel subsidies, or converting to no-tillage agricultural practices. As a country whose emission levels are relatively low already, Sierra Leone could not commit to a certain outcome or result - for example, reducing emissions to a specific level (a greenhouse gas outcome).

  • Providing collateral and improving product market access for smallholder farmers: a randomised evaluation of inventory credit in Sierra Leone

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Tuesday 1 January 2013
    Objective: 

    Inter-seasonal fluctuation of agricultural prices is widespread throughout the developing world. Prices decrease during the harvest season due to the availability of large quantities of crop, while the prices increase in the lean season. However, small farmers are often unable to benefit from the price increase owing to credit constraints for meeting their immediate cash needs and the lack of storage facilities. They are thus forced to sell at low prices and are unable to make a profit.
