Within a relatively short period of its existence, the EPA boss has set the Agency on a trajectory that is aligned with the objectives of both the Agenda for Change and the Agenda for Prosperity. Through her leadership, the EPA-SL has set in motion a sustained regulatory framework that has positively impacted the course of environmental governance in Sierra Leone. She was also instrumental in having a good number of Multilateral Environmental Agreements signed, ratified and domesticated in Sierra Leone. Due to her astuteness and remarkable accomplishments in the implementation of MEAs at home, and given also the immense support that government has provided to the EPA-SL, Sierra Leone has been designated by the Abidjan Convention Secretariat as a center of excellence. In 2016, Madam Haddijatou Jallow was appointed Chair of the African Ministers and Leaders of the Environment, having served previously as its Vice Chair.

Madam Haddijatou Jallow has won other accolades nationally and internationally in recognition of her outstanding performance as head of the EPA-SL. She is happily married and with children.
