Access To Land

New report: People’s Manual on the Guidelines on Land Tenure

The International Planning Committee for Food Sovereignty just released a People’s Manual on the UN Guidelines on Governance of Land to advance the land rights of farmers, indigenous people, the landless, and other communities.

The Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure of Land, Fisheries and Forests in the Context of National Food Security are a new international instrument that can be used by peasant, fishing and pastoralist organisations, indigenous peoples, the landless, women and youth, and civil society as a whole, to assert their rights.

This People’s Manual is a pedagogical and didactic guide, which aims to make it easier to understand the Guidelines and to provide a practical approach to people on how to use them in their struggles. It highlights the parts that offer answers to their needs and provides advice on mechanisms, strategies and actions that can be adopted to generate dialogue and to defend human rights and social justice in the processes, institutions and activities of governance of natural resources.
