The “Community Protocol” for large scale land acquisition in Sierra Leone is prepared by Green Scenery as part of the ALLAT network in an attempt to ensuring fairness and equity in the land management system in the country to guarantee understanding between all the parties (land owners, community leaders, corporate bodies and state authorities).
The Protocol is simply designed and presented in twelve (12) steps which should guide all the parties in initiating and entering into formal arrangements for any large scale land acquisition which could ensure that all interests are fully catered for leading to greater efficiency and improvement in land management processes for investment in the country. The Twelve Steps is developed in a participatory manner involving community members and state actors with the facilitation and support of Green Scenery. ALLAT has played a significant role in the process, as it has committed funds to the printing and wide circulation of this document. We wish to extend our sincere thanks to all our donors for their support and the Government of Sierra Leone for creating space for our work.
