CSR participates in Study of Sierra Leone’s Agricultural Sector

In October 2015, CSR participated in a study of Sierra Leone’s agricultural sector conducted by the International Development Group (IDG) to determine what, if anything, could be done to increase that embattled country’s ability to feed its people in the aftermath of Ebola and run agricultural surpluses that could be sold abroad to earn foreign exchange. CSR’s Bob Randolph looked specifically at Sierra Leone’s court system to evaluate whether judicial ineffectiveness in enforcing agribusiness contracts and executing on judgments creates a drag on agricultural productivity. The IDG team’s findings will be published by USAID later in the year.
