MoPED Continues Consultations with Stakeholders 

Committee Room One, House of Parliament, Tower Hill, Freetown 19 May, 2021– The Ministry of Planning and Economic Development has, today, held consultations with the House of Parliament, Civil Society Organizations, Audit Service Sierra Leone and the Anti-Corruption Commission on Sierra Leone’s preparation for its third Voluntary National Review (VNR) Report on the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and participation at the 2021 United Nations High Level Political Forum on SDGs. 

The consultation workshop was to solicit stakeholder’s input into the VNR process and to discuss the need for strengthening collaboration among the institutions for effective delivery of their oversight, advocacy, legislative and monitoring duties in the national development process. 

Addressing the participants, the Development Secretary at the Ministry, Peter Sam-Kpakra expressed his delight at the participatory process, while emphasizing that this year’s VNR Report process would be expected to present an evaluative, highly focused report showcasing key policy impact on the ground.

He said as strategic actors in the process, their input remained a critical part of the VNR process, and indeed their participation would enhance national ownership of Sierra Leone’s 2021 VNR Report on the SDG implementation, with the focus on SDG 4 (Quality Education) and SDG 16 (Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions).

The Development Secretary thanked the Leadership of Parliament, especially the SDG and Development Planning Committees for their immense support to the entire process.

Hon. Musa Moigua, the Chairman of the Committee on the SDGs, House of Parliament, said  Parliament was committed to supporting and partnering with the Ministry and every stakeholder involved in the process to deliver a VNR Report that showcases the improvement of the welfare of the Sierra Leonean citizenry, including government’s efforts in consolidating peace and security. 

He said the VNR would not only showcase progress the country has made but would also serve as a pointer to rekindle national efforts in areas that show significant challenges in the achievement of the SDGs by 2030. 

It could be noted that Sierra Leone and Egypt would be the ONLY African countries among the 9 VNR third-timers worldwide to present reports this year.
