Sierra Leone’s Minister of Communications, Innovation and Technology, Salamata Bah has outlined some of her priority programmes to help the government fight the global climate change crisis as part of her ministry’s plans to enhance socio-economic development in the country.

Minister Bah said one of the visions of President Dr. Julius Maada Bio in his second term of office is to use Information and Communication Technology to help address some of the causes and impacts of climate change, adding that the climate change issue in the country will be a cross line ministerial affairs that should include the ministries of agriculture, transport, and aviation, as well as marine resources.

She said government will soon be creating an ICT platform for experts and other people in society to come up with their ideas on fighting climate change, using the latest cutting-edge technology, adding that the use of ICT has also been helpful to fight other challenging global issues like the Covid-19 and other health pandemics.

The minister further assured that her ministry is working with other partners to create new technologies to help in the climate change fight like wind energy and renewable solar energy and provide other forms of energy to meet the growing electricity needs of school-going children.
