This animation unpicks the challenges around getting fair compensation for people affected by the construction of large dams, and sets out the various stages to ensuring that expropriated farmers can securely invest and develop their new land.
The five-minute video, entitled Securing the land rights of people affected by dams in West Africa, is part of the GWI action-research and advocacy project implemented by the International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED) and the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN).
GWI works with family farmers and governments to shape policies and practices that support livelihoods and food security in the context of large multi-purpose dams.
