The United Nations Country Team (UNCT) in Sierra Leone consists of all the 22 UN agencies, funds and programmes in Sierra Leone. The UNCT works “as one” to support Sierra Leone in reaching the Sustainable Development Goals and Sierra Leone’s own national development agenda.
UNCT works to support the “Sierra Leone’s Medium-term National Development Plan (2019–2023)” through a people-centred, rights-based approach to development as outlined in the Joint Vision of the UN Family for Sierra Leone (pdf) – 2009-2012, the Transitional Joint Vision – 2013-2014 and the United Nations Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework from 2020 to 2023.
The UNCT is led by Mr. Sunil Saigal, UN Resident Coordinator (RC) for the Republic of Sierra Leone.
