Land & Environmental Justice in Sierra Leone

The Challenge

To spur economic growth, the government of Sierra Leone has been aggressively courting large-scale agriculture and mining investments. These have often led to the exploitation of communities and environmental devastation.

Namati’s Solution

Namati supports communities to protect customary land rights, remedy environmental harm, and, if they wish, negotiate fair deals with investors.

Our Goals

Our 5-year goals are to 1) significantly reduce environmental and social harm in 50 mining, agricultural, or development projects, and 2) change policy nationwide so that the people who depend on the land have a meaningful voice in what happens to it.
