In a technical workshop from 5 to 7 March 2024, in Makeni, Sierra Leone, stakeholders and coordinators of the District Multi-Stakeholder Platforms (DMSP) defined a common vision to ensure their goal for inclusive, peaceful and sustainable land governance.

The workshop - organized by FAO, Partnerships2030, Land for Life and Green Scenery Sierra Leone - successfully achieved its objective of reinforcing the governance of the DMSP, through a sound stakeholder analysis, the development of a common vision and platform specific workplans. A total of 36 participants (out of which 30% were women) from 6 districts gathered in Makeni. Priority areas where DMSP could play a significant contribution, such as promoting alternative dispute resolution mechanisms, supporting the implementation of the new land laws, and climate change, were identified.

The DMSP includes representatives of land, agriculture, and food security-related institutions, traditional leaders, landowners, investment entities, women’s organizations, and media. Collaborations such as MSPs thus remain an essential tool in this area, and is likely to be used even more in the future in Sierra Leone’s districts.
