Sierra Leone: UN Fund Approves Projects to Assist Peacebuilding Efforts (Page 1 of 1)

Short piece on the PBC having approved funding for four new projects in Sierra Leone:

'The United Nations fund set up to help address the immediate needs of countries emerging from conflict today approved four new projects to support the ongoing electoral process and improve the judiciary, water, sanitation and health facilities in Sierra Leone.

"The approval of these projects is timely and demand-driven," Christian Holger Strohmann, Spokesperson for the UN Integrated Office in Sierra Leone (UNIOSIL), said following the action taken today by the UN Peacebuilding Fund's Steering Committee for Sierra Leone.'

The article also puts a figure of $16 million USD as the total financing allocated to seven Sierra Leone-based projects of the PBC.
