Sierra Leone continues to demonstrate resilience by achieving significant progress in building state institutions and maintaining stability as part of its post-conflict peacebuilding and reconstruction agenda. Yet, at the same time, the peaceful environment maintained over the past 20 years is facing threats that the government and its development partners should address to avoid a major conflict, especially as the country moves closer to the elections in 2023. In line with the Government of Sierra Leone request to the UNSG for support to the 2023 electoral cycle and the subsequent Needs Assessment Mission recommendations, UNDP in consultation with the national and international partner organizations formed the Elections Project “Fostering Peaceful, Credible and Inclusive Elections in Sierra Leone 2022-2023” to support the election management bodies (EMBs) and national institutions in the preparation and conduct of the peaceful, credible and inclusive 2023 elections.
