|For Sierra Leone, improvements in MSW management can be made especially in the areas of technical capacity and social awareness. While MSW management policies exist, the country does not have the technical capacity to implement them. Improvements, such as the purchase of equipment, will require a source of funding. The relevant governmental institutions also do not adequately coordinate MSW management activities. Moreover, there is poor social awareness of MSW management issues. Waste segregation at source is not undertaken, and public environmental campaigns are needed in order to support existing MSW management policies in the country.
