The Human Capacity Development Incubator is a hub for local start-ups, private, public, and academic organizations to collaborate on projects that will help citizens access government services and information more efficiently. At the HCD, partners share data, build models, develop hypotheses, and test pilot projects to inform government investments in human capital.
His Excellency, President Julius Maada Bio, has laid out a clear vision of Human Capital Development (HCD) focusing on 3 sectors: education (feed the mind), health (take care of the body) and food (feed the belly); with education being the flagship program of his administration. To develop human capital, the Government of Sierra Leone (GoSL) is committed to seeding, translating and scaling sustainable innovations at national level, leveraging on existing data, technologies and partnerships. This work is led by the Human Capital Development Incubator at the Directorate of Science, Technology and Innovation (DSTI) in the Office of the President.
