International Disaster Response Laws (IDRL) in Sierra Leone: legal preparedness study for strengthening the legal and policy framework for foreign disaster response


This report examines existing laws in Sierra Leone relevant to international disaster response in light of global practice and the IDRL Guidelines. It is part of the International Disaster Response Laws, Rules and Principles (IDRL) project in Sierra Leone, which aims at assisting the Government of Sierra Leone to evaluate its legal preparedness for international disaster response.

The IFRC’s IDRL Programme seeks to reduce human vulnerability by promoting legal preparedness for disasters. It works in three areas: (1) collaborating with National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies and other partners to offer technical assistance to governments on disaster law issues; (2) building the capacity of National Societies and other stakeholders on disaster law; and (3) dissemination, advocacy and research.
