PROJECT 1: RESTORATION / RECLAMATION OF THE LAND LOST DUE TO COASTAL EROSION AND SEA LEVEL RISE FROM SUGAR LAND TO LAKKA IN THE WESTERN AREA OF SIERRA LEONE.

 

                                                                                   EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

SHOUT CLIMATE CHANGE AFRICA (SCCA) is a Non-Governmental, non-political, non-ethnical, non-racial Organization that encourages all to “SHOUT NOW OR NEVER” on climate change issues that may affect us all.

Over the years, the effect of climate change has greatly affected the coastal communities of Freetown especially the Goderich to Lakka areas. Sustainable Development Goal 13 requires “Climate Action” since inaction will have a direct consequence on non-development of communities that are affected thereby encouraging the circle of poverty.

To undertake “Climate Action” according to the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 13 requires solving those problems that are posed by climate change.

 

Thus the coastal erosion in the above areas could not be dissociated from sea level rise.

In Sierra Leone especially Freetown coastal areas around the Goderich to Lakka, there is massive coastal erosion that is destroying valuable property like the St Michael Lodge and other important structures and the eventual loss of the beautiful beaches along those places. The direct effect is the loss of the country’s tourism income generation that these beaches would have provided.

This project hopes to assist in stopping further “eating into the land by the sea” and totally reclaim the land and beaches lost in the above process; that will create a bigger problem if not checked by now. Detailed of the full project document has been developed and will be made available to you if you are interested to partner with SCCA.

TARGET BENEFICIARIES

The targeted beneficiaries are some 200,000 peninsular-mountain community people including some 150 villagers valley, vegetable farmers and the underprivileged, with focus on youth, women, children and as well as the physically challenged (Disabled) with a total rippling effect (indirect beneficiaries) of some 300,000 other community members

It will reduce the effect of climate change and improve the ecosystem/biodiversity as citizens negative activities on the environment will be minimized through greater awareness of citizens’ roles and responsibilities on climate change and the environment. It will also create employment for the youths of the communities, and they will claim ownership and protection for it when the beautiful landscape and biodiversity of these areas will be restored.

SIERRA LEONE PLASTIC WASTE RECYCLING PROJECT PROPOSAL 

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

 

SHOUT CLIMATE CHANGE AFRICA (SCCA) is a Non-Governmental, non-political, non-ethnical, non-racial Organization that encourages all to “SHOUT NOW OR NEVER” on climate change issues that may affect us all; formed two years ago; that is made up of scores of professional of various expertise that work with other Organisations, Communities, NGOs, Institution, Companies, Governmental MDA etc. in providing services that addresses climate change environmental problems and related issues. Since its creation, SCCA has undertaken some four environmental related assignments working with the local radios, televisions and newspapers  and other organisation in address community climate change environmental and related concerns.  Key among them was transforming communities from depositing refuse dumps in drainages, support and encouraged communities to contribute and prioritise tree planting and reforestation activities; renewable energy usage to fossil fuels and toward decentralised community-owned and controlled sustainable energy. Shout Climate Change Africa is an independent campaigning organisation that acts to change attitudes and behaviors of individuals, to protect, conserve the environment and promote peace

SCCA has a well-structured management system; it operates from a coordinating center in Freetown, with personnel in the Regional headquarters and hopes to have Focal Persons in all districts in Sierra Leone

Over the years, the effect of climate change has greatly affected the coastal communities of Freetown especially the Goderich to Lakkah areas. Sustainable Development Goal 13 requires “Climate Action” since inaction will have a direct consequence on non-development of communities that are affected thereby encourage the circle of poverty.

To undertake “Climate Action” according to the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 13 requires solving those problems that are posed by climate change.

The rampant and indiscrimate deposition of plastic waste in Sierra Leone especially on the streets of the cities and big town are not only eyesore but also heavily polluting the drainages and our waters.

As the World including Sierra Leone continues to be greatly affected by Climate Change and Environment disasters there is a dare need to address this issue.

The recently adopted United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), urges nations to adopt measures that will combat Climate Change, Protect the Environment and Conserve the forest to save lives through strong policy formulation and implementation.

It is against this background that SCCA is submitting a proposal on sustainable management of plastic waste so as to prevent the disasters associated with them

Detailed of the full project document has been developed and will be made available to you if you are interested in funding SCCA to implement the project. 

 

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Project Title: THE SUSTAINABLE REHABILITATION OF THE MANGROVE IN THREE AREAS IN THE SHENGA, BUMPEHTOKE, TESANA AND MUPELEH AREAS OF THE KAGBOROH CHIEFDOM IN THE MOYAMBA DISTRICT – SIERRA LEONE

SHOUT CLIMATE CHANGE AFRICA has a well-structured management; operates from a coordinating centre in Freetown.

With personnel in the regional headquarters and hopes to have focal persons in all districts in Sierra Leone. Over the years, the effect of Climate Change has greatly affected the coastal communities of Freetown especially the God rich to Lakka areas. Sustainable Development Goal 13 requires “Climate Action” since inaction will have a direct consequence on non-development of communities that are affected thereby encourage the circle of poverty.

To undertake “Climate Action” according to the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 13 requires solving those problems that are posed by climate change.

 

The rampant deforestation of the mangrove is very visible in the rate of reduction of the country’s mangrove. Nearly 40% have been lost over the past 30years.If this trend continues; there will be no more mangroves after the next sixty years.

The mangroves/forest is very important component in the marine/land ecosystem. They serve as sanctuary for birds and home to scores of biodiversity including various mammals, reptiles and amphibians. They help to regulate the soil water content by reducing excessive solar radiation and hence the water content. They also help to reduce the evaporation of the water/sea around them thereby reducing the salt component concentration the increase of which is unfavorable to the fish and usually kill them.

The mangrove trees can also act as a very good carbon sink thereby reducing our carbon emission budget.

The increase in the deforestation of the mangroves especially in the Moyamba district areas of Sierra Leone is very worrisome. The mangroves are a notable place there birds and some land animals also live there. It also regulates the soil water content and salt/water concentration of the sea along the shoreline not to mention its notable role of high absorbility of CO2 and deterrent role to coastal erosion. Its massive reduction is responsible for the reduction of biodiversity especially the mammals, birds, amphibians and reptiles.

This project therefore hopes to mobilize the coastal community and engage them to reforest the mangrove in the four main coastal areas of the Shenga, Bumpehtoke, Tesana and Mupeleh areas of the Kagboroh chiefdom in the Moyamba District.

It will create a short impact employment for the youths of the community, and they will claim ownership and protection for it and the ecosystem of these areas will be restored. Alongside the rehabilitation will include the massive sensitization and advocacy for the community. It will easily be replicated in other coastal places. Land use, climate change will be included in the posters and be used for Exhibition on Wheels in order to reach more people.

Detailed of the full project document has been developed and will be made available to you if you are interested to partner with SCCA.

PROJECT TITLE: THE SUSTAINABLE REHABILITATION OF FOREST THROUGH THE PLANTING OF ACCAIA SENEGALIS, JETROPHA, CASHEW AND PAULORIAIN PLANTS IN FOUR AREAS IN THE MADENA, TONKO LIMBA AND MAGBEMA CHIEFDOMS IN KAMBIA DISTRICTS

PROJECT EXECUTIVE SUMMARY:

SHOUT CLIMATE CHANGE AFRICA (SCCA) is a Non-Governmental, non-political, non-ethnical, non-racial Organization that encourages all to “SHOUT NOW OR NEVER” on climate change issues that may affect us all; formed two years ago; that is made up of scores of professional of various expertise that work with other Organisations, Communities, NGOs, Institution, Companies, Governmental MDA etc in providing services that addresses climate change environmental problems and related issues. Since its creation, SCCA has undertaken some four environmental related assignments working with the local radios, televisions and newspapers      and other organisation in address community climate change environmental and related concerns.  Key among them was transforming communities from depositing refuse dumps in drainages, support and encouraged communities to contribute and prioritise tree planting and reforestation activities; renewable energy usage to fossil fuels and toward decentralised community-owned and controlled sustainable energy.

Shout Climate Change Africa is an independent campaigning organisation that acts to change attitudes and behaviors of individuals, to protect, conserve the environment and promote peace. Creating a toxic free nature, SCCA catalyzes the energy revolution to address the number one threats facing our planet: Climate Change. It also hopes to defend our ocean by challenging wasteful and destructive fishing, and creating a global network of marine reserves. It also helps in protecting the World’s Ancient forest and the animals, plants and people that depend on them. In conflict and post conflict countries like Sierra Leone, SCCA is working for disarmament and peace by tackling the causes of conflict and consolidate such peace through community engagement. It also helps for sound environment calls for the elimination of all nuclear weapons. 

SCCA campaigns for sustainable Agriculture by rejecting genetically engineered organisms, It helps in protecting biodiversity by encouraging community/national solution to community problem environmental problems.

The organisation is strongly working with some civil society organizations, development partners, relevant government ministries, departments and agencies to protect the environment and to promote the recently adopted Sustainable Development Goals that mainly focuses on the environment. The organisation comprised of 5 core staffs, working with 15 Volunteers and more than 45,000 members in total nationwide.  The organisation builds its capacity from its experience in advocacy, campaign, monitoring, community engagements, sensitization and education and reporting on climate change and associated environmental issues.

SCCA has a well-structured management; operates from a coordinating centre in Freetown.

Since its inception, SCCA has undertaken several community engagements resulting in the establishment of voluntary CSO partners in three districts to report on climate change, conservation and environmental issues in their communities. 

This project therefore hopes to mobilize the targeted community and engage them to rejuvenating this vital ecology of the forest in these places, whereby more trees are planted for every one cut during the charcoal burning process.

It will create a short impact employment for the youths of the community, and they will claim ownership and protection for it and the ecosystem of these areas will be restored.

Alongside the rejuvenation will include the massive sensitization and advocacy for the community. It will easily be replicated in other places. Land use, climate change will be included in the posters and be used for Exhibition on Wheels in order to reach more people.

TARGET BENEFICIARIES

The targeted beneficiaries are some 500, charcoal burners, farmers and the underprivileged, with focus on youth and women, with a total rippling effect (indirect beneficiaries) of some 5,000 community and other members that depends on charcoal for the heating/cooling source of energy

It will reduce the effect of climate change and improve the ecosystem/biodiversity as citizens negative activities on the environment will be controlled through greater awareness of citizens’ roles and responsibilities on climate change and the environment. It will also create employment for the youths of the communities, and they will claim ownership and protection for it and the biodiversity of these areas will be restored. It is in line with three of the strategic conventions on climate change related issues especially in the contribution to the overall emission reduction (through removal by sink) and that of the ecological and biodiversity restoration. The economic returns from the trees planted will capacitate the youths and communities in the ensuring cooperate responsibility cost benefit sharing that this project will produce.

THE NATIONAL  FOOD CROP PRODUCTION PROJECT PROPOSAL

Project Title Summary: The Sustainable National Food Crop Production through the Planting of self-sustainable Economic Plants of Banana, Plantain and Pineapple for the rural Women and Youth of Sierra Leone at Chiefdom to District level to address Food Security, Poverty Alleviation and Climate Change in line with the with Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 1, 2 and 13 respectively.

PROJECT RATIONALE AND APPROACH

This project was planned by SOUTH CLIMATE CHANGE AFRICA (SCCA) in response to a nationwide research finding of easy to grow and high economic return food crops for the cultivation of Banana and Plantains in each section of each chiefdom to districts of Sierra Leone. The project will be implemented in ALL the rural areas of Sierra Leone in phases,  as a way of making the participants economically self-sufficient as well as addressing the environmental issue of rampant deforestation (caused by the slash and burn upland food crop production) that is contributing to global warming. Here they will be using the low land (Boli) area together with the banks of swamps/rivers/streams and will not be burning the grass brushed but used it as manure around the plants. The broad and green leaves of both Banana and Plantain will act as a good sink in removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere thereby reducing Sierra Leone emission budget.

The Present proposal is for the first phase of the Project that will be piloted in one district. The second phase during the second year will next pilot it in one Province including the first district. The final Phase is the rolling out of the process nationwide. The budgets for each of these various phases are in given the excel sheets two, three and four.

Shout Climate Change Africa is an independent campaigning organisation that acts to change attitudes and behaviors of individuals, to protect, conserve the environment and promote peace. Creating a toxic free nature, SCCA catalyzes the energy revolution to address the number one threats facing our planet: Climate Change. It also hopes to defend our ocean by challenging wasteful and destructive fishing, and creating a global network of marine reserves. It also helps in protecting the World’s Ancient forest and the animals, plants and people that depend on them. In conflict and post conflict countries like Sierra Leone, SCCA is working for disarmament and peace by tackling the causes of conflict and consolidate such peace through community engagement. It also helps for sound environment calls for the elimination of all nuclear weapons. 

SCCA helps in protecting biodiversity by encouraging community/national solution to community problem environmental problems.

The organisation is strongly working with some civil society organizations, development partners, relevant government ministries, departments and agencies to protect the environment and to promote the recently adopted Sustainable Development Goals that mainly focuses on the environment. The organisation comprised of 5 core staffs, working with 15 Volunteers and more than 45,000 members in total nationwide.  The organisation builds its capacity from its experience in advocacy, campaign, monitoring, community engagements, sensitization and education and reporting on climate change and associated environmental issues.

SCCA has a well-structured management; operates from a coordinating centre in Freetown.

Since its inception, SCCA has undertaken several community engagements resulting in the establishment of voluntary CSO partners in three districts to report on climate change, conservation and environmental issues in their communities. 

SCCA campaigns for sustainable Agriculture by rejecting genetically engineered organisms and encouraging people to undertake intensive economic agricultural practices unlike the primitive extensive one that waste land and reduces the green vegetation.

This project therefore hopes to mobilize the targeted community and engage them in productive agricultural practices that will make them economically self-sufficient. Sierra Leone especially the Moyamba District has vast amount of lowland (Boli-land) as well as wet lands. However for years, the people concentrate on upland agriculture especially in rice production. Such method deforests the land thereby contributing to climate change through emission of CO2 (during the slash and burn process) and the reduction of the carbon sink following the deforestation. 

In the present project, it was discovered that the cultivation of economic food crops of Banana, Plantains, pineapple and sour sap  are less time consuming and brings in faster and better economic returns and being permanent crops, they only need initial input as its expansion and sustainability could be achieved from the continuous harvest of the starting crops.

It will create a long impact employment for the women and youths of the rural communities, and they will claim ownership and protection for it and the biodiversity and ecosystem of these areas will be restored.

Alongside the farming process will include the massive sensitization and advocacy for the community regarding sound and sustainable environmental management. It will start sections of the chiefdoms to the district in the first phase. This will be gradually extended to the province in which it started in the second phase and finally easily be replicated in the whole country. Sustainable Land use and climate change will be included in the posters and the Exhibition on Wheels to reach more people to involve many more in the project in other parts of the country.

The final project budget summary for all the phases is tabulated in the table under Budget and following is the required budget for the first phase.

As a Climate Change Humanitarian Nongovernmental Organization working to seeing Sierra Leone and the world free from Climate Change environmental hazards, Shout Climate Change Africa-SCCA Team paid a first time congratulatory visit to have an audience with Sierra Leone current HON. MINISTER OF TOURISM AND CULTURE- DR. MEMUNATU PRATT to discuss their organisations vision as one of its focal line Ministries, and to map out the best feasible strategies in line with the Tourism Sector. Despite the pressing official issues which the Hon. Minister had at hand at this cocoon stage of restructuring her new office for the best execution of her mandates, the Hon. Minister had a time out of her schedule to chair this meeting. SHOUT CLIMATE CHANGE AFRICA (SCCA) staff was given a tumultuous welcome by Dr. Pratt. This was followed by inviting the presence of God for a moment. Being an approachable, listening leader but stern to details; Dr. Pratt having heard the vision of SCCA precisely for the Ministry and the Country in extension matching the objective of the NEW DIRECTION, the Minister wasted no time in communicating her sector’s collaborative working Bloc with SCCA for successful undertakings. The meeting was held at the conference room where the minister expressed her commitments and readiness to be in a good working relationship with SCCA as both institutions operates on similar vision but diverse project implementation strategies thereby tackling the challenges and pitfalls which the Tourism sector and the culture of the country had envisaged over the years. As a hardworking Minister, with demonstrated competence and dedication towards her duties; the Minister talked about improving Tourism and Culture to international standard thereby fulfilling the dream of the NEW DIRECTION. She added that there have been several lapses in the country’s tourism and culture, but with the help of the NEW DIRECTION OF HIS EXCELLENCY- GENERAL (RTD) BRIGADIER JULIUS MAADA BIO led government, tourism and culture will be at it best. Dr. Pratt emphasized on improving and resurrecting our drown cultures. She explained about the significant of monuments and relics to the country which reminds us about our long told histories. As a way of achieving the goals of HIS EXCELLENCY-PRESIDENT BIO’s VISION FOR THE NEW DIRECTION sustainability for a better Sierra Leone, the Hon. Minister also insisted on working with other Ministries/Departments and Civil Society Organisations to make a success in the NEW DIRECTION. The Minister said people should know the areas that are safe, areas to be sold and areas that are not safe, and if such is done we will reduced the dangers on Climate Change. She mentioned series of disasters that has befallen us as a country leading to people being homeless the Mount Sugar Loaf incident being a citing case. She also talked about monitoring and improving the hotels and guest houses so that they will be in a very good standard. Various salient contributions and presentations were displayed that linked with the PRESIDENT’S STATEMENT (THE NEW DIRECTION). The Honorable Minister was so pleased at every read/displayed by the various contributors. She talked about instituting the Global Positioning System (GPS), and the creation of Official Website for Sierra Leone Tourism and Culture to be accessed & linked internationally with host of visitors from various part of the world. Dr. Pratt summed that should the issues raised be adequately taken in hand, then we’re heading for a better and new Sierra Leone. SCCA Team lead posited that the TOURISM INDUSTRY is one of the world’s largest, accounting for some 9% of global GDP and generating more than 5.5 trillion EURO in revenue each year. Speaking on behalf of the Organization, the founder and CEO of SCCA Mr. Finnex John Asibor displayed his Organization’s dedication for the Tourism Sector; not to mention the entire country- the government Sierra Leone. He explains about the developmental plans and projects SCCA has developed germane for the restoration of the lost beaches, reserve & protected forests and other tourist attraction sites. Mr. Asibor emphasizes to work significantly with TOURISM MINISTER who prioritizes that the objective of the NEW DIRECTION is successfully achieved; as well as with all its line Ministries and other development partners to engage in environmental management plans and address disaster risk reduction in the country. As an Organization shouting “NOW OR NEVER” committed/humbled to addressing this global phenomenon- Climate Change, through awareness raising on the reality of environmental havocs and its negative impacts on the lives of citizens, SCCA team submitted its unreserved commitments with the government of Sierra Leone to match the vision of the NEW DIRECTION. Mr. John Asibor furthered that a full documentary has been produced by SCCA as a showcase to the dangers of Climate Change – global warming which has adverse effect on Tourism sector because of its proximity to coastal tourism. SCCA Team summarized that tourism sector provides livelihoods to millions of people around the world. The sector is particularly important for some third world countries, especially those of poorer nations which Sierra Leone is no exception. The sector however encounters numerous threats from Climate Change – impacts that are already being felt. As temperature rises, the attractiveness of many destinations will fade. The ongoing coastal sea level rising threat in Freetown, Sierra Leone a case of LAKKA from SUGARLAND through BANGO FARM communities have been degraded wholly by the mentioned Climate Change effects. As an Organisation dedicated to addressing these changes in climate and weather patterns, Shout Climate Change Africa is certainly thrilled to draw radical maps in conjunction with other organisations/institution and the collaborative work of the government of the Republic of Sierra Leone.

THE HONOURABLE MINISTER OF AGRICULTURE & FORESTRY PLEDGES HIS COMMITMENTS TO THE FIGHT AGAINST CLIMATE CHANGE

In pursuant to fulfilling its objectives and mission- a Non-governmental Climate Change Humanitarian Organization that operates to seeing Sierra Leone and the world from the anthropogenic climate induced disasters, Shout Climate Change Africa (SCCA) meets with the Honorable Minister of Agriculture & Forestry; Mr. Joseph Jonathan Ndanema on 29th June 2018. On this visit, the Honorable Minister was highly indebted for the visitation for which he welcomed SCCA Team. The Hon. Minister expressed his deep sense of commitments to the fight against Climate Change. He stressed on concentrating on aggressive forestation of the country’s capital-Freetown, which has been and is still the most vulnerably Place to environmental menace in Sierra Leone. He cited NAIROBI- the capital of Kenya as a reference. The city appears naturally pleasant with decorated trees at various cross areas within its length and breadth. The city, he insisted is ornamentally dressed in deep green trees which make Nairobi not only attractive; but strategically secured from the threat of these current environmental problems facing mother earth. He furthers the talks as follows: “Climate Change environmental issues being one of the key priorities of His Excellency the President- Rtd. Brigadier Julius Maada Bio …this Ministry shall work hard continuously to make Freetown designed with ornamental trees. These trees will not just be for the beautification of Freetown, but for the protection of our great capital from potential destruction”. The Hon. Minister – Mr. Joseph Jonathan Ndanema continued that Sustainable Agriculture is not the only precedence of his Ministry, continuous forestation of the country through the Forestry Division is also at the ministry’s spinal cord. “The red flag is up; climate change is everyone’s business and all hands must be on desk”. The founder and CEO of Shout Climate Change Africa (SCCA) neatly barge in; upon handling over the CLIMATE CHANGE COMMITMENTS PEDGE CERTIFICATE to the Hon. Minister of Agriculture and Forestry. SCCA stated that the long-term wellbeing of the human race, hospitable environmental conditions of every society, its populations everywhere, depends on the continued stability and functioning of the biosphere’s ecological and physical systems, often referred to as life-support systems. The world’s climate system is an integral part of this complex of life-supporting processes, one of many large natural systems that are now coming under pressure from the increasing weight of human numbers and economic activities. The primary challenge facing our present societies in Sierra Leone, the world community is to achieve sufficient reduction in greenhouse gas emissions so as to avoid dangerous interference in the climate system. National governments, via the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), are committed in principle to seeking this outcome. In practice, it is proving difficult to find a politically acceptable course of action—often because of apprehensions about possible short-term economic consequences. SCCA therefore seeks to describe the context and process of global climate change, its actual or likely impacts on our living conditions in this environment, and how human societies should respond, through both adaptation strategies to lessen impacts and collective action to reduce ongoing ENVIRONMENTAL DEGRADATION: the uncontrolled deforestation of our reserve forests, protected forests, logging as well as poaching disregards authority mandate is a serious cause to alarm now. This land degradation reduced our ecological balance of nature, environmental issues, health issues and also poses a huge threat to sustainable economic agricultural activities. The ever growing demand of land displaces natural environment consisting of flora and fauna instead of being replaced. Environmental degradation and other human activities that may also increase greenhouse gas emissions. Based on our regular research, much of the resultant risk to human populations and the ecosystems upon which they depend come from the projected extremely rapid rate of human instigated change in climatic conditions. The Honorable minister of agriculture and forestry assures SCCA of the ministry commitments with regards the mission of the NEW DIRECTION to fight climate change in line with UNITED NATIONS Sustainable Development Goals: 2; which hope to end hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture; and SDG GOAL 13 that urges countries to take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts. This climate change action talk was rested on the Honourable finally signing the certificate with green carpet photographs taken.

 

BO District Council Chairman Commits His Devotion with Shout Climate Change Africa to Fight Climate Change

 

13th August 2018 was another significant platform for the ongoing Climate Change Environmental Mitigation Actions in Sierra Leone with the Bo District Council, Chairman Mr. Bindi pledging his dedication towards addressing the country’s environmental challenges.

The Bo District Council Chairman Mr. Bindi who has over the years included in his council activities, environmental caring initiatives to include the enforcement of cleaning exercises both within the municipality of Bo town and the District collectively. Derived from his avid environmental approaches to rescue the present & the future from human induced disasters, Chairman Bindi gave a ceremonial welcome to Shout Climate Change Africa (SCCA) CEO Mr. Finnex John Asibor. He commenced his kindest appreciations as he carefully endorsed the Climate Change Commitments pledge.

Chairman affirmed that he has not just been hearing about the numerous activities of the Organisation (SCCA), but he has witnessed and seen for himself the environmental advocacy role played by Shout Climate Change Africa in the country’s Western Area and other districts across the country.

“Being an Organisation with diverse initiatives and expertise, it would be required for government institutions with similar mission to collaborate with SCCA in various project implementations… they are purely environmental driven body, and I believe many have seen the impact the Organisation has created in awareness raising among residents of Freetown particularly”, He said.

SCCA spokesman Mr. Finnex Asibor informed this medium that it was all knowing success in the ongoing progress being made so far in the country towards environmental safety awareness. Getting the Bo District Chairman- Mr. Bindi on today’s date to have signed his full commitments is no child’s play. This did not come in a surprise, seeing his records, what he has been doing towards saving our societies and our planet from degradation. We are not surprised about this event today. This shall have a far reaching effect on improving our environmental conditions.

Indeed, government efforts, the role of EPA and partners are being heavily felt today.

The mid-September 2015, massive floods caused by torrential rains which hit Freetown and caused serious damage particularly to people living within the slum areas, which left at least seven people dead and more than 3,000 displaced with properties worth millions of Leones destroyed.
It was against this backdrop that Shout Climate Change Africa, on Climate Change Campaign produced a video depicting the hazards of environmental neglect for the attention of various stakeholders.  

The headquarter of  Shout Climate Change Africa is currently present in Freetown Sierra Leone but its activities covers most of the country.
Shout Climate Change Africa has produced video clips advocating the need to stop disposing refuse and garbage in the drainage systems which is causing blockages and reduction of the channels hence making them to overflow their banks. We have been campaigning against environmental degradation since 2014 and in mid-September 2015, massive floods caused by torrential rains hit Freetown and caused serious damage in the city of Freetown and journalists went into all the parts of the city that was affected to see the tragic incident. This tradition of ‘bearing witness in a non-violent manner continues today, and our organizational workforce is an important part of all our campaign work.
