CLIMATE CHANGE IMPACTS in coastal and riverine Sierra Leone

In June 2022, a team of Save the Children staff conducted research with 52 children across four coastal communities in southern Sierra Leone about the impact of climate change on their communities. The research comes as Save the Children is developing a proposal to the Green Climate Fund in Sierra Leone to address the impacts of climate change in coastal and riverine communities. Sierra Leone is one of the poorest countries in the world and the 15th most c l i m a t e – v u l n e r a b l e country globally. The coastal districts are home to 1.5 million people, whose lives and livelihoods are increasingly threatened by the climate crisis.
