  • Green economy and Entrepreneurship: Activities that improve the connections between U.S. and Sierra Leonean businesses, and/or expand economic opportunities, entrepreneurship, and financial independence among women, youth, and underserved populations, particularly programs that promote innovation and economic opportunity related to climate change, and demonstrate how America and Sierra Leone can work together to achieve our climate goals.
