This paper represents part of an area of work on land tenure in post-conflict situations. Postwar Sierra Leone presents a number of challenges in reconstruction and development. Among these is significant food insecurity and investment in the rural areas, which is especially difficult for subsistence producers who are still recovering from the effects of the war. This study seeks to understand the land tenure story in postwar Sierra Leone, and how it intersects with food security, and small and large-scale investment in the country.
