Urban contextual analysis of extreme poverty in Freetown, Sierra Leone

We undertook an urban contextual analysis of extreme poverty in Freetown, using a political economy approach to DFID’s sustainable livelihoods framework. The aim of the project was to understand extreme poverty in Freetown, with a focus on disaster risk in the city’s informal settlements. Analysing how social and political networks interact with indicators of urban poverty — facilitating or limiting access to better incomes, assets, services and employment opportunities in urban areas, we conducted fieldwork in three informal settlements in Freetown and produced a comprehensive contextual analysis report and on the basis of the research findings, developed programming options covering livelihoods, disaster risk reduction, health, education, and WASH.

Political Economy Analysis of the Challenges and Opportunities for Women in Decision-making, Local Development, and Social Cohesion (Sierra Leone)

Based on extensive fieldwork in nine chiefdoms, across three districts in Sierra Leone, Bodhi Global Analysis delivered a PEA report identifying and analysing the factors that influence women’s political participation, to provide recommendations for the next phase of SFCG’s existing project on increasing 15 women’s roles in decision-making, local development and social cohesion. The purpose was to evaluate existing projects and address any programming gaps for the next programme cycle.
