The goal of LEGEND is to apply and test the Analytical Framework for Due Diligence in Responsible Land-Based Agricultural Investments on a large-scale oil palm plantation by Natural Habitats Ltd. The programme is active in Zimmi, Makpele Chiefdom, Pujehun District and is aimed at protecting the land rights, livelihoods and food security of vulnerable people while promoting sustainable businesses. Furthermore, Solidaridad is testing the recent adoption of the New Land Policy (NLP) on Natural Habitat’s work in the chiefdom. The NLP was inspired by the Voluntary Guidelines for Responsible Governance of Tenure of Land, Forest, and Fisheries (VGGT), promoted by FAO and the Committee of World Food Security.
