UNEP has been working in Sierra Leone since 2009 to assess and address the environmental causes and consequences of the 1991-2002 civil war, as well as the current environmental challenges facing the country. Together with the UN Development Programme (UNDP), the food and agricultural organization (FAO) and the World Health Organization (WHO), UNEP is delivering capacity-building support and technical assistance through the UN’s “Joint Vision for Sierra Leone”.
