Sierra Leone was placed on the PBC’s agenda on 23 June 2006, following a referral from the Security Council. To date, the PBC has worked with the government and international and local partners to address the country’s peacebuilding priorities in the areas of youth employment and empowerment, justice and security reform, good governance, energy sector development, and capacity building.
