The appointment of Madam Haddijatou Jallow is in recognition of her outstanding leadership role during her tenure as Chair of the African Ministers and Leaders on the environment, a position she still holds. Through the immense support of His Excellency the President Dr. Ernest Bai Koroma and his government, Madam Jallow has succeeded in projecting Sierra Leone as a country that has made significant progress in environmental governance. In 2017, Sierra Leone was designated as a center of excellence by the Abidjan Convention Secretariat. Furthermore, due to the government’s unwavering commitment to environmental protection and management, Sierra Leone currently serves as the Vice President of the Abidjan Convention and is also Chairman of the Global Environment Facility (GEF) for the West African constituency.

This latest appointment is another indication of Madam Jallow’s hard work and commitment to sound environmental management in Sierra Leone.

Madam Haddijatou Jallow graduated with an LLM in Environmental Law from the prestigious George Washington University 20 years ago. She is happily married and with children.
