    Sierra Leone

    In Sierra Leone, the well-being and livelihoods of many people, particularly the rural poor, are based on secure and equitable access to land, fisheries and forests. Increasing pressure on these resources in recent years has led to an escalation of conflict over access to natural resources.

    Sierra Leone, Scotland

    In many countries, unidentified private individuals and legal entities obtain significant economic benefits from land. This lack of transparency can make it harder for affected communities and governments to hold them accountable for land use decision-making and any sort of violation they commit. It can also leave investors open to risk if they do not know who is truly behind a company they are doing business with.

    Sierra Leone

    Après dix ans de guerre civile marquée par de graves violations des droits de l'Homme et des atrocités, en particulier sur les femmes et les enfants, la Sierra Leone était considérée comme un « État failli ». Il a fallu une intervention massive de forces armées sous mandat de l'ONU pour mener la démobilisation à bonne fin en 2002 et rétablir la paix. Les organes de l'État ont commencé à réassumer leurs fonctions et l'économie redémarre. Pourtant le pays restenstable, et les structures administratives sont fragiles.

    Afghanistan, Sierra Leone, Somalia

    Afghanistan, Sierra Leone et Somalie : ces trois pays sont des États fragiles ayant des antécédents différents. L'auteur de cet article analyse ces exemples afin d'identifier les causes de leur situation, par exemple le rôle des identités ethniques, la revendication du pouvoir par des clans et d'autres groupes sousétatiques ou l'insuffisance de la représentation de la société au sein des gouvernements. Il estime que le plus grand danger pour un État est la violence qui peut rapidement déstabiliser un État faible et le précipiter dans le chaos.

    Sierra Leone

    Sierra Leone is one of the least developed countries in the world and is still recovering from a civil war that ended in 2002. Increasingly, the Sierra Leonean government seeks to attract foreign investors through providing opportunities for large-scale land leases for the development of agribusiness. This has triggered a rapid transformation process that poses a considerable threat to food security and social stability. Despite being a pilot country for the implementation of the Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure, there is no real change on the ground as yet.
