Publicly Funded Agricultural Research
Sierra Leone Agricultural Research Institute (SLARI) was established
in 2007 as the primary national agricultural research institute. It is
planned that SLARI will operate eight research centers focusing on
various commodities and research themes, but as of 2009 only two of the
eight centers were operating; the remaining centers are in the process
of being rehabilitated and staffed.
