Sierra Leone: Wage rates improve in Sierra Leone, mVAM Bulletin #15 March 2015

World Food Programme, (2015)


Imported and local rice prices increased modestly in March. A recovery in economic activity is leading to an improvement in unskilled wage rates (up 7 percent compared to February). The households who are depending the most on negative coping strategies are in the districts of Kailahun, Kono, Bombali, Tonkolili and Koinadugu. March data continues to show that negative coping strategies are most frequently used by the poorest households, by those living in Ebola-affected rural areas and by households headed by women.
