Content - Summary

Sierra Leone has come a long way since the end of the conflict in 2000. Yet is still bottom of the human development index, with perhaps the worst access to safe water and adequate sanitation in the world. This is the time to redouble efforts. This is the moment that external players such as NGOs and donors can add the most value by supporting the Government and civil society in Sierra Leone to rebuild and start to deliver the basic services the people have been denied for so long. But this report’s findings show that the way this support should be delivered needs to be carefully thought through. Certainly a substantial amount of money is needed. The government of Sierra Leone have not sufficiently prioritised the sector, with more going to the road fund in the 2003 budget than was allocated to water services, sanitation and hygiene in total. External funds account for far more than half of all money going towards water, sanitation and hygiene promotion, and even more than this is needed. Bilateral donors in particular are neglecting the whole sector, and multi-lateral donors are neglecting the rural areas of the country.
