The Government of Sierra Leone obtained a loan from the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) for the Rehabilitation and Community based Poverty Reduction Project (RCPRP) and a Grant from the IFAD for the Rural Finance and Community Improvement Programme (RFCIP). All projects are placed under the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Food Security (MAFFS) and managed by the same National Project Coordination Unit. The project duration is until 2015 and beyond.


RCPRP and RFCIP pursue a participatory approach to enable rural communities in a total of 4 districts to increase agricultural production, enhance food security and generate income from agricultural and other activities through capacity building of institutions, services and groups at the grassroots level. They include components on the rehabilitation of MAFFS infrastructure, the rehabilitation of Inland Valley Swamps and tree crop plantations, support to community planning, project development and implementation at community level, rehabilitation and construction of rural infrastructure including feeder roads, support to farmer field schools, microfinance, value addition in agriculture and private sector involvement.


The Government of Sierra Leone in 2009 requested IFADs support through the Global Environmental Facility (GEF) Focal Point and the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Focal Point to mobilise a complementary proposal to the RCPRP, to address climate change concerns. The proposal for and LDCF project grant for USD 2,644,800 was developed in 2010, and the grant was CEO Endorsed on 21st December, 2010. In August 2011 the project became effective with the signing of the Grant Agreement between IFAD and the Government of Sierra Leone.


The International Fund for Agricultural Development/Least Development Countries Fund (IFAD/LDCF) project will complement the activities undertaken under Phase 1 of the RCPRP and those planned for RCPRP-PLUS in a synergetic manner that will ensure that the LDCF funding is covering additional costs associated with the adaptation needs that were identified in the National Adaptation Programme of Action (NAPA).

Its objective is to lessen the impact of climate change on vulnerable rural communities, as well as on natural resources critical for sustaining agricultural production and increasing food security.
