Moving from Recovery to Self-Reliance: USAID Impact in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone

The West African nation of Guinea is predominantly Muslim and is home to approximately 12 million people.  It is blessed with natural beautiful landscapes which encompass the ocean, the mountains, and the forests. The country is estimated to have the largest reserves of bauxite in the world, and is one of the largest producers of the mineral. The agricultural sector provides a subsistence livelihood for nearly 80 percent of the population.

Despite massive mineral, hydroelectric, and agricultural potential, weak governance has made it one of the poorest countries in the world. However, following a largely peaceful and fair presidential election in October 2015 and the end of the Ebola outbreak in 2016, the country is once again on a positive trajectory. Our work increases quality health services, with a focus on malaria. USAID also supports economic growth for equitable and sustainable prosperity in Guinea by promoting inclusive agriculture sector growth, enhancing farmer productivity, and enabling a favorable agribusiness environment. We work to increase citizen engagement through more effective and accountable government institutions and processes.
