AbstractThe Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were launched by the United Nations (UN) on 25th September 2015 to succeed the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) that ended on the 31st of December 2015. The UN is staging the first High Level Political Forum to review progress that has been made in the implementation of the new Agenda taking place in New York, in July 2016. The Forum will assess initial steps undertaken by member countries to integrate the SDGs into national development processes. Sierra Leone is among the 21 UN Member States that have acceded to the July review so far. The main purpose of this paper is to share lessons with other African countries as to the initial steps Sierra Leone has taken to integrate the SDGs into its national development processes. The country has submitted to the UN a draft SDGs adaptation report that this paper has extensively reviewed, among other sources of information utilized to address its objective.
