For the people

  • Advocacy for Good Governance of Natural Resources

    In 2016, Green Scenery, with support of FAO, initiated a series of workshops to reinforce the capacities of Civil Societies to promote the UN’s Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure of Land, Fisheries and Forests in the Context of National Food Security. The strengthening of the voice of civil society and communities in the implementation of the VGGT have rendered their participation in the Government led process and their monitoring efforts regarding large scale land investments in the country more effective. By providing guidance and information on how to improve tenure governance, the so-called VGGT seek to contribute not only to food security, poverty eradication and sustainable livelihoods, but also to environmental protection and sustainable economic development. 

  • Encouraging Responsible Investment in Agriculture

    By popularizing the Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure of Land, Fisheries and Forests in the context of National Food Security (VGGT), Green Scenery aims at creating framework conditions that ensure transparent agricultural investments and the responsible administration of land.

  • Transparent and Participatory 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.

  • GPS based Advocacy on Land Issues

    In 2013, Green Scenery took the chance to join a NGO consortium set up by Cordaid and the Coalition Factory 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.
