Sustainable and Thriving Environments for West African Regional Development: Sierra Leone

This project is part of
The Sustainable and Thriving Environments for West African Regional Development (STEWARD) project is actively working in PZ1, training community members of Fintonia village, located in Sierra Leone. The local community has participated in workshops on a Geographical Positioning System (GPS) and the principles of community land-rights mapping. The capacity building workshop enabled members of the community to work hand in hand with Thomson Reuters to be able to use a GPS to map their owned land in relation to the forest areas of PZ1. Thomson Reuters has collected a set of data and has generated a map of Fintonia that not only describes the land tenure but also the ownership of the lands of Fintonia.
