Land is an essential source of livelihood for a majority of Sierra Leoneans. Most of Sierra Leone’s population lives in rural areas and it’s GDP is largely based on agriculture. The three main livelihood activities surveyed in the 2015 population and housing census are crop farming, animal husbandry and fishery, which depend largely on access to and ownership of land. Smallholders mostly cultivate rice, cassava, cocoa, coffee, cashew, groundnut, palm oil, vegetables and other fruit trees.

    We are reminded on a daily basis that the natural environment in which we live is vitally important for our well-being, whether it is in the form of climate change, global warming, declining fertility or dwindling natural resources.

    The British set up a trading post near present-day Freetown in the 17th century. Originally the trade involved timber and ivory, but later it expanded into slaves. Following the American Revolution, a colony was established in 1787 and Sierra Leone became a destination for resettling black loyalists who had originally been resettled in Nova Scotia. After the abolition of the slave trade in 1807, British crews delivered thousands of Africans liberated from illegal slave ships to Sierra Leone, particularly Freetown.

    Green Scenery is concerned that 60% of the total area in one of the districts in Sierra Leone could soon be converted for large-scale industrial oil palm plantations.

    LandForLife

    The Land for Life Initiative is a joint endeavor of civil society partners in four African countries (Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Liberia and Sierra Leone), supported by the German NGO Welthungerhilfe (WHH), the Civil Society Academy (CSA) and the German Ministry for Economic Collaboration and Development (BMZ).

    Natural Habitats Group is a company fully committed to the sustainable production of organic and fairly traded products, including organic palm oil. Natural Habitats products are cultivated using only 100% organic practices by small farmers and owned plantations in South America and add organic credibility to food, personal care and animal nutrition products.

    The Network Movement for Justice and Development (NMJD) is a national human rights-oriented civil society development and advocacy organization that was established in Kenema, eastern Sierra Leone in 1988. It engages in advocacy and strengthens/enhances the capacity of civil society organizations to effectively engage women, men, children, communities, government and other actors for the transformation of society.

    Sierra Leone Legal Information Institute ("Sierra LII") is a non-profit organization registered in Sierra Leone that aims to contribute to the continuing national progress by providing free access to the nation’s legal information.  Free access to legal information of other countries and regions of the world is also made possible through its affiliation with the Free Access to Law Movement and the global network of Legal Information Institutes.

    The Sierra Leone Network on the Right to Food (SiLNoRF) was established in 2008 as an African civil society mechanism to work exclusively on right to food issues. It was created just after the establishment of the African Network on the Right to Food (ANoRF) in Cotonou in 2008. Following the Cotonou declaration of ANoRF, several Civil Society Organisations, NGOs, CBOs working in the areas of Human Rights Advocacy became members of SiLNoRF.
