Sierra Leone embraces a Human Rights Based approach to land governance assessment

Sierra Leone Training of Trainers. Freetown, Sierra Leone.

Acknowledging that the VGGT implementation should be consistent with international human rights instruments, and that access to land is a precondition to the realisation of human rights as illustrated in the General Comment No. 26 of the Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, Sierra Leone will pilot the application of the Human Rights for Land monitoring tool. Developed by TMG Research and the Danish Institute for Human Rights, the tool explains the linkages between land governance indicators and human rights, which enables national Human Rights Institutions, civil society and others to report on land governance deficits to established human rights monitoring and reporting mechanisms.

In partnership with TMG Research, the Human Rights Commission of Sierra Leone and Land for Life, between 5 and 7 December 2023, FAO supported the first Training of Trainers on the use of the tool in the country, which comprises the delivery of a national questionnaire and local questionnaires. While the national questionnaire aims at assessing laws, policies and procedures, the local questionnaire targets rights-holders who can self-report on how they experience the results of policy implementation or lack thereof and their enjoyment of rights.

Training of Trainers. Freetown, Sierra Leone.

The tool and approach were well received by the 50 participants from governmental and non-governmental actors gathered in Freetown for the launch of the project Promoting inclusivity for improved local tenure governance. The result of the assessment, expected in June 2024, will define a benchmark, and provide guidance for the implementation of the new laws.
