Sierra Leone

The implementation of Sierra Leone’s 1325 and 1820 NAP (SiLNAP) through the local development plans in local communities is now part of the performance assessment of local district officials. In other words, part of the evaluation of the job performance of mayors, local councilors and other local officials in Sierra Leone is how they have contributed to SiLNAP’s implementation. Furthermore, the Localization program in Sierra Leone has also led to the establishment of Local Steering Committees on SiLNAP. These committees team up with the National Steering Committee composed of government and civil society and led by the Ministry of Social Welfare, Gender and Children’s Affairs in coordinating the implementation of SiLNAP across the country. The Training for customary law officers on UNSCR 1325 and 1820 is also an important achievement of the Localization program. Localization of SiLNAP Guidelines were developed by the Ministry of Social Welfare, Gender and Children’s Affairs and the Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development, with inputs from the Localization workshop participants, including civil society.
