Engineering the future in Sierra Leone – SDG capacity building

Project Description

Engineers have an important role in advocacy for a real change towards a sustainable transition. In collaboration with Engineers without Borders Denmark and the Sierra Leone Institution of Engineers, ANE is sharing Nordic expertise with the aim of expanding the capacity of the Institution to become a relevant and influential voice on the implementation of the SDGs in Sierra Leone. The project focuses on promoting the SDGs, specifically access to clean water, and aims at building both technical and non-technical capacity while promoting gender participation in engineering.

The partnership with EWB

“Partnerships for the goals”, SDG #17, is essential to reach the remaining 16 Sustainable Development Goals, and with this project, the partnership between the three organisations will help build core infrastructure for communities in need, improve living standards while supporting the local engineering organisation in becoming a voice for sustainable development.
