Overordnede mål :

The overall objective is to contribute to sustainable development of Sierra Leone through civil society advocacy for sustainable, relevant and affordable technologies and qualified expertise in meeting the needs and expectations of the population in working towards the SDGs.

Umiddelbare mål :

1. S.L.I.E. strengthened at organisational and strategic levels in order to advocate and work for SDGs from an engineering sector perspective. 2. S.L.I.E. and its member base has increased its knowledge, awareness and analysis of how to promote sustainable development and how to implement and advocate for its full realisation from a practical and country specific approach.

Målgrupper :

● S.L.I.E. Council members (23), to participate in the formulation of the strategy ● S.L.I.E. membership base (approximately 400 persons participating in regional and national strategy seminar (30)) ● Members of S.L.I.E. and potential members to work as volunteers together with the EWB_DK members (20) ● S.L.I.E permanent staff (5) ● Students and S.L.I.E. members to participate in master class on sustainable development (25) ● Students (both S.L.I.E members and non-members) to participate in the SDG demonstration project and in the installation of the S.L.I.E. solar system (20)


The aim of the project is to enable Sierra Leone Institution of Engineering (SLIE) to advocate and work for the SDGs from an engineering sector perspective, as well as to equip SLIE and its members to promote sustainable development from a practical and country specific perspective. EWB-DK in cooperation with ANE will provide technical support to SLIE in developing its first long term strategy strategy though a participatory process bringings its members and partners across the country on board. In parallel with that SLIEs administravie/- organisational capacity to serve its members and attract new members will be also enhanced. Possible risks could be lack of ownership, limited interest, and commitment to allocate the time required, or mismanagement of funds. To address these risks, the partners will keep a continuous focus on providing sufficient motivation and capacity building to increase knowledge and capacity for implementation of activities that are new to SLIE.
