Guidelines for Sustainable Agricultural and Bioenergy Investment (Sierra Leone)

This 70-page document generated by a working group of government ministries, civil society organizations and public institutions is meant to instill responsible behavior in large-scale agribusiness deals for Sierra Leone. Yero Baldeh, the African Development Bank Representative for Sierra Leone praised the work, saying, “The Guidelines fill an urgent need in Sierra Leone to establish new transparent governance structures that address existing policy and regulatory gaps, facilitate opportunities for investment, and create an enabling environment for food and energy security.”

The Guidelines were developed for use as: 1) a screening tool; 2) a checklist for final approval; and 3) a framework for monitoring performance along target indicators.
