Access To Land

Case studies

There is a wealth of European experiences which are developing innovative ways of securing access to land for new forms of socially and environmentally responsible farming. Most of them rest on strong connections with their local or broader community.

These case studies, written by members of the network or collected from partners, aim at providing ideas and inspiration, nurturing emerging experiences, and showing that alternatives are possible. They also highlight the constraints and difficulties these initiatives are faced with, as well as the beneficial impact they can have in a favourable policy environment.
