Sierra Leone End-of-Term Report 2014-2016
In early 2017, the Independent Reporting Mechanism (IRM) published the end of term report for Sierra Leone’s first action plan. The report covers the full action plan implementation period of July 2014 through June 2016.
In Sierra Leone, Charlie Hughes is an Independent Researcher. His findings are summarized below:
“Sierra Leone accelerated implementation of its commitments in the second half of the action plan period. The government largely completed five out of eleven commitments, representing preparatory steps for a number of government reforms. However, many activities were internal to the government and have not led to significant improvements in citizens’ access to information or participation opportunities.”
The final version of the report is available below. The two-week public comment period ended 19 April 2017.
