The strategic plan, he said, is in line with the nation’s mid-term national development plan and the SDGs.
The theme for the launch is: conserving our natural resources and it would be done through the Ministry of Environment with support from the European Union Delegation in Sierra Leone.
The CTF is one among six government agencies under the Ministry of Environment.
