Securing land tenure for communities affected by Fomi dam: four interviews
Concurrently to the national workshop on securing agricultural land tenure for communities affected by Fomi dam, which was held in Conakry in March 2015, we interviewed four of the participants to gather their points of view and their thoughts on the subject [in French only]. They address the issues of expropriation, compensation, displacement and resettlement of local populations, and how to secure land tenure for local populations in resettlement areas.
An estimated 48,000 people will be displaced by the construction of Fomi dam: there are significant challenges to achieve this local transformation while maintaining social order and allowing the affected communities to benefit from this long term development project – for more information, see the synthesis of the working report on land tenure in Fomi [in French only].
