Project Description:

The project will support Sierra Leone's Constitutional Review Process by building the capacity of Non State Actors including political parties to contribute substantively to the process. It will complement the "UN Support to the Constitutional Review Process 2013-2015" led by UNDP, and will support dialogue within and between Non State Actors, empowering partners to take informed decisions, build consensus, and thus make the review process more effective. The Constitutional Review Process is a crucial step in Sierra's progression from peacekeeping and peacebuilding to a developmental focus.
