Project Overview

2016 – 2021: Three Year Partnership with Ohorongo Cemenet and FNB

The LEAD Project was launched in 1997 in recognition of the fact that many future human rights issues in Namibia are likely to involve decisions about and competition over the ownership and development of land and other natural resources.
LEAD’s vision is therefore a Namibia, where:

  • Everyone has fair and lawful access to land and natural resources;
  • The environment and ecosystems are healthy and maintained and utilized in a sustainable manner; and
  • All interested and affected people are empowered to participate meaningfully in their development.

LEAD promotes the rights and responsibility of all Namibians to own and access land lawfully, to utilize Namibia’s natural resources in a sustainable manner; and to live in an environment that is healthy while it participates meaningfully in its development (mission).
