Sierra Leone Diaspora Trade & Investment Project


The World Bank hosted a webinar on October 14th as part of Global Diaspora Week 2015. The webinar was a part of an ongoing World Bank study of the Sierra Leonean diaspora to identify opportunities to mobilize the community for post-Ebola economic development.

During the webinar, we summarized study findings, shared major takeaways from numerous diaspora outreach events that have taken place as part of this project, and outlined next-steps for diaspora mobilization efforts.
