Sierra Leone: Freetown has no future if environment isn't saved

14 Aug 2018, TRF

Freetown is still under threat one year after a devastating mudslide killed an estimated 1,000 people and left thousands homeless. It must tackle deforestation, poor housing and decrepit drainage if it is to prevent the next disaster, but insufficient funding remains a major obstacle to upgrading the city's infrastructure.
