thematic areas
Thematic Areas

Natural Resources Management (NRM) good governance

Women Rights to own and control Land and property


Natural resources (land, sold minerals- i.e. gold, diamonds, bauxite, zircon; forests; natural gas, oil and waters-i.e. lakes, rivers and sea) have an undeniable impact on the life of a state: they affect the economy, its wealth, institutions, its social and political agendas. A constitution is a crucial part of the governance of natural resources: creating institutions, establishing basic rules for markets, income distribution, transparent systems and management of natural resources for the benefits of citizens and the state.

key challenges
Key challenges
  • Mismanagement, lack of accountability, or unfairness in the sharing of the benefits arising from natural resources
  • Definition of stakeholder for purpose of allocation of revenues from natural resources
  • Definition of right of property ownership of natural resources: communal and customary rights, private ownership, state ownership etc
Challenges ……
  • Definition of governing bodies (national and provincial levels of government) who should have the authority to make and administer laws relating to the development and exploitation of natural resources (i.e. taxation, royalty ,employment practices, safety and environmental standards, labour laws, import and export permits and tariffs, etc. for development of the natural-resources sector

Establishment of clear framework for the treatment of natural resources revenues (i.e. transparent and fair generation, collection and sharing of natural-resource revenues)

  • Allocation based on right to directly collect certain types of revenues by a state or local government
  • Collection of revenues into a single account and then sharing by all stakeholders (Formula-Based revenue sharing)
Challenges ……
  • Delineation of territorial boundaries to address the issue of resources which traverse national and district boundaries such as water, Marine resources, Oils and natural gases
  • Land accessibility and the Land tenure system particularly for case of women in Sierra Leone
Challenges …..
  • Free, prior and informed consent of the indigenous people on land natural resources use and management
  • Land grabbing in Sierra Leone (giving away land to investors on abusive or unfair terms and large scale production of non-food agricultural commodities creates little employment and food for the local people
  • Conducting consultative meetings and focus group discussion;
  • In the process, facilitating the generation and collecting ideas, suggestion and others matters as contribution to the Constitutional Review process

The field officers will organise and conduct consultative meetings/focus group discussions at community level; Small groups of participants maximum 10, will include communities and traditional leaders, women, and youth groups, CSOs, Local councils, NGOs and representatives of relevant Ministries

project contribution to the cr process
Project contribution to the CR process

By engaging communities, traditional leaders, women and youth groups to the CR process on land and natural resources good governance best practices, the project will lead to inclusiveness in the constitutional review process

It will lead to generation of ideas and debate of the best frameworks, systems and mechanisms for managing natural resources to be included in the constitution


By engaging CSOs, Local councils, NGOs, relevant MDAs in the project area, the project will be laying a foundation for implementation of the national constitution as well as a sustainability strategy for the program
