Namati and SDI publish new guide on investment for Liberian communities

Getting a Fair DealThe Community Guide to Getting a Fair Deal from Companies and Investors is a “how to” guide for rural communities considering whether to share their land and natural resources with investors.

The guide explains how a community can proactively prepare themselves before an investor approaches them, highlights key questions community members should ask themselves and potential investors before entering contract negotiations and describes ways to ensure that the community receives truly equitable benefits in return for sharing their land and resources.

The guide also sets forth actions communities can take if they have already signed an agreement but feel they are being treated unfairly or that elements of the contractual agreement are not being enforced.
