Land & Natural Resources 

Activities and Services

LNR lawyers provide vulnerable and affected communities and individuals with in-depth legal consultation, representation and defense in both civil and criminal matters relevant to land and natural resource disputes.

In order to empower vulnerable communities, the LNR team has developed legal skills training courses in land and natural resource laws and judicial process. These courses are delivered to affected communities to help them to more successfully advocate for their own rights. Trained communities are further supported in their community action.

The LNR program contributes as a legal resource to a number of consultation meetings, seminars, conferences and research projects with relevant partners to ensure monitoring and evaluation of ongoing land and natural resource issues.

The LNR program runs several legal awareness campaigns each year, disseminating legal knowledge of land and natural resource rights through mass and social media.
