Sierra Leone for the fourth time in four years, progressed upwards in Transparency International’s Global Corruption Country Rankings, moving from 115 in 2021 to 110 out of 180 countries surveyed in the 2022 Transparency International Corruption Perception Index (TI-CPI).

However the country’s score of thirty-four (34) remains the same as in 2021, which is above the sub-Saharan average, and the highest the country has ever recorded since the CPI rankings began.

Sierra Leone has now moved twenty (20) places upwards on the CPI, from 129 in 2018 to 110 in 2022.

The CPI is an annual survey used by TI, the leading global civil society watchdog on the global fight against corruption, to assess comparative perceived levels of public sector corruption in countries across the World.
