    This report presents findings on corruption in large scale land-based investments (LSLBIs) in Sub-Saharan Africa, and although it draws on case studies from Sierra Leone and Zambia, its recommendations aim to be applicable across Sub-Saharan Africa.

    The situation in The Gambia is a good
    example of the many challenges small states have to deal
    with. The country is faced with institutional capacity
    constraints and due to a narrow resource base and a small
    domestic market, its production base and exports show little
    diversification. Like other small states, the country tends
    to rely heavily on external trade and foreign investment to
    overcome its scale and resource limitation, increasing its

    Liberia aims to achieve middle-income
    status by 2030 through broad participation and inclusive
    growth. The Government's growth strategy aims to
    accelerate growth through the exploitation of natural
    resources, while maintaining sound macroeconomic policies,
    improving the business environment, and prudently allocating
    aid and commodity-based financing resources to expand
    infrastructure and formal sector employment. However,

    Sierra Leone

    This First Phase Report on Sierra Leone

    Real gross domestic product (GDP)
    expanded by 6.7 percent in 2013, a modest deceleration from
    the 7 percent recorded in the previous year, but well above
    the average 4.9 percent rate of growth recorded over the
    last ten years. The economy benefited from strong growth in
    the agriculture (rebounding from last year's drought),
    mining and services sectors, which largely offset weaker
    activity in fishing activity. A continuation of these

    Guinea, Guinea-Bissau

    After decades of turmoil and
    instability, a period of calm and progress evolved in
    Guinea-Bissau in 2009. A military coup in April 2012
    interrupted it. A fresh start is needed to alter the
    dynamics that kept Guinea-Bissau poor. In 2013, Gross
    National Income per capita was US$590. Average economic
    growth barely kept pace with population growth. In 2010,
    poverty at the national poverty line of US$2 a day was 70
