A new world order where land and natural resources are utilised to the benefit of every community
To promote inclusive, people-centred and community-driven land governance for sustainable development.
Our Core Values
Human dignity and respect: safeguarding the inherent dignity and the equal and inalienable human rights of all individuals who must not be left on the periphery in accessing opportunities, power, resources, services and benefits as well as being involved in decision making and community development processes.
Non-discrimination and unity: ensuring that no one is subjected to unfair treatment on basis of their sex, race, colour, ethnic origin, birth, creed or religion, culture, social circumstances, geographical background, economic standing, political opinion or disability by influencing necessary changes under the law and policies as well as in mind-sets and practice for harmony across communities.
Equity and justice: recognising differences between individuals and communities taking positive action, including empowerment, in order to promote equitable tenure rights and access to land and natural resources for all women and men, the youth and vulnerable as well as traditionally marginalised people.
Holistic and sustainable approach: acknowledging that natural resources and their uses are interconnected, and require adopting an integrated, fit-for-purpose and sustainable approach so as to ensure their effective administration for the benefit of every community including those categories of people who have inadequate welfare and/or are susceptible to risk of insecurity and/or are exploited.
Generally, we envisage that working through communal land associations will enable diversified livelihoods, protected tenure rights, increased food security, improved infrastructural facilities, efficient people-centred governance, reduced gender disparities, resilient market economy, and an empowered populace.
I consider myself an ordinary voyager and all-rounder person. My technical skills, work experience, and character have equipped me with strong abilities to implement justice-related programmes that define me as a legal anthropologist. I have vast knowledge and experience in multi stakeholder engagements, institutional capacity development, and community development interventions. I possess a Diploma in Law from the Law Development Centre, Makerere, and a Master of Science degree in Project Management from Sunderland University, United Kingdom. I also hold a Bachelor of Philosophy degree in Humanities and Social Sciences from Urbaniana University, Italy. I am currently the Executive Director of the Landcode Initiative which is still an embryonic organisation with a vision of a new world order where and and natural resources are utilised to the benefit of every community. My desire is to promote people-centred and community-driven land governance for more inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable community settings. I have gathered a lot of professional experience through working with civil society organisations, network platforms, social enterprises, government institutions, the legal fraternity, development partners, community groups, and justice innovators/entrepreneurs. This has improved my self-drive, creativity, results orientation and problem-solving capacity thereby equipping me with excellent understanding of human development and the need to improve the quality of our lives as a major purpose for our existence by focusing more efforts and/or resources on what really works to create the needed impact in society. I find it necessary that we all join efforts through joining networks such as these in order to collectively garner each other's support for a better world especially for the most vulnerable persons in our local communities. Indeed, this calls for fairness in our world order and the law provides a strong basis for providing solutions by ensuring the facets of justice more user friendly.
