Namati: Innovations in Legal Empowerment

Namati is an international organization that tests the potential of legal empowerment through innovative interventions and research. Through our work, we seek a better understanding of the impacts of legal empowerment and the most effective mechanisms for achieving them. 

As a means of cultivating a more robust movement for legal empowerment, Namati also hosts a growing Global Legal Empowerment Network of practitioners and supporters. Network members are active in every continent in the world, whereas Namati’s programs and research focus on exploring the potential of legal empowerment in specific countries, including Sierra Leone, India, Liberia, Mozambique, and Uganda.

Provision of Integrated Emergency Support Through Protection, CCCM, and Shelter Interventions in IDP Settlemen


The proposed integrated intervention will scale up access to quality CCCM, HLP, CP, GBV, and Shelter/NFIs services in Kaxda and Deynille. NoFYL will implement a multi-cluster intervention around CCCM and HLP. This project will fill existing gaps in ESNFI, CCCM, HLP, GBV, and Child protection support and complement activities undertaken under other ongoing projects. On CCCM NoFYL aims at strengthening coordination structures through training, improving the coordination of service providers, service monitoring and mapping to identify gaps, community-led site maintenance activities to ensure the upkeep of sites, support governance structures to ensure community participation and self-management of sites and information management at a site level, site improvement activities to minimize protection risks and ensure safety in sites and safety audits to identify site risks. Scale-up inter-sector CFMs and conduct site decongestion activities to minimize protection risks at target sites. On HLP, intervention NoFYL will undertake eviction risk assessments and monitoring of threats to evictions by assessing potential eviction sites to inform the response. Provision of case management services, legal counseling around land tenure documentation, provision of post-eviction cash-based response packages, and coordinating referrals to other complementary services. ESNFI intervention will be complemented by Shelter partners by improving the IDPs living conditions through the distribution of emergency NFI kits and emergency shelter kits. Any cases that are identified by NoFYL monitors with Shelter needs will be referred to Shelter partners for support. Child Protection (CP) case management will be spearheaded by SWDC, identified children at risk or traumatized children will be referred for support, an incident of family separation will be reported to SWDC for tracing and reunification purposes. Joint safety walks and mapping will be conducted to identify risks for children. Referrals networks will be strengthened and coordinated for safer and timely responses. NoFYL will implement these activities in sites in Deynille (10) and Kaxda (5). 6,112 households, approximately 36,675 (10,368 men, 14760 women, 5,227, boys, 6320 girls) will benefit from this intervention, as well as the whole community working in these sites including local authorities, clusters, and other organizations. The multi-sectoral approach will be useful to create synergies enabling the concentration of services and expertise within the same location and the same population leading to achieving a greater impact. The four partners (NoFYL, SSWC, and SWDC) will build on each other strengths and better complement each other to ensure community acceptance and success in implementation. The synergy between the 3 sectoral partners will ensure sound management of the program, greater impact, efficiency, and more cost-effective operations. The project target sites include the following Deynille District Sites - Center Midnimo (301HHs), Center Al Cadaala (370HHs), Center Cosob (296HHs), Center Mideeye (453HHs), Center Qanciye (547HHs), Center Hadii La Yaabo Yaasinka (410HHs), Center Iskaashi 2(377HHs), Center Dahraan (450HHs), Center Doco Waalid (513HHs), and Center Dhibane (682HHs) Kaxda District Sites - Center Sanaag (563HHs), Center Miisaan (576HHs), Center Gargaar(376HHs), Center Shaafi (451HHs), and Center Xurmo (434HHs)

G4INDO Indonesia


Geodata for upgrading small holders’ farming systems in Indonesia


The primary purpose of the G4INDO project is to assist the Government of Indonesia in its efforts to formulate and implement a financially viable and sound crop insurance policy for smallholder rice-based farmers. More in particular, the project will: • provide technical assistance to the design and implementation of the crop insurance policy in general and to 200,000 farmers in particular. • Monitor the growth of rice crops of 200,000 farmers using radar and optical satellite technology. • Analyse deviations from expected crop development and yields using weather information and crop growth models. The secondary purpose of the project is to: • Provide 200,000 farmers with seasonal forecasting information and expected crop yields supporting decision-making of farmers on growing a third crop. This information reaches the farmers through the agricultural extension system of the Ministry of Agriculture.

Target Groups

G4INDO is aimed at smallholder rice farmers on Java, Indonesia. These farmers typically have land holdings smaller than 2 hectares, many of them have even less than 1 hectare. Land ownership is also highly fragmented and parts of the fields are cultivated on a sharecropping basis.
