Fair Natural Resource Management & Service Delivery

We support communities in demanding fair, transparent and accountable natural resource management and service delivery and intervene in conflicts between communities, local authorities, government and private sector stakeholders about land rights, social and environmental impact of mining and development-induced displacements.

Key issues:

  • Transparent land management, access to social facilities and public services, and regularization of informal settlements

  • Protection of individual and communal land rights and free prior informed consent and fair compensation of communities affected by development-induced displacements

  • Protection and rehabilitation of the environment and sustainable and participatory management of natural resources

  • Communities actively participate in the planning and implementation of development projects and benefit from natural resource exploitation in their areas

Approaches:

  • Facilitating sustained dialogue and negotiations through conflict interventions

  • Supporting community-based advocacy and conducting evidence-based advocacy

  • Facilitating multi-stakeholder dialogues, policy development and monitoring of policy implementation at district, provincial and national levels
