Securing Equitable Access to Natural Resources

In Sierra Leone, the livelihoods of many, particularly the rural poor, are based on secure and equitable access to and control over natural resources. Large-scale agricultural investments in the country often cause problems for small-scale farmers. Many people in the affected districts have lost their land and were not adequately compensated for the loss of this important natural resource.

Evidence Based Advocacy on Land Issues

In 2013, Cordaid and the Coalition Factory gave Green Scenery the possibility to join an NGO consortium that was set up to protect the rights of communities in Sierra Leone, by effectively carrying out lobby and advocacy activities on land ownership and land use based on information gathered with GIS/GPS systems.

 

 

 

Evidence Based Advocacy on Land Issues

Land is a major political factor and a highly contentious issue in Sierra Leone, as it has been one of the causes of the country’s civil war. 

Transparency and Participation on Land Deals

In Sierra Leone, long-term lease contracts of large-scale agricultural investors are often closed to the public and unsuspecting small-scale farmers suddenly lose access to their fields. In 2013 and 2014, Green Scenery with support of Welthungerhilfe empowered communities, State and non-State actors to deal with large-scale land leases and the social impacts of investments in order to increase transparent and participatory governance in relation to the right to and the management of land.
