New Video from the International Conference on Scaling-up Strategies to Secure Community Land and Resource Rights

The international conference on Scaling-up Strategies to Secure Community Land and Resources Rights brought together 180 participants from 40 countries representing local communities, Indigenous Peoples organizations, governments, private investors, food and resource companies, and development and conservation NGOs, all of whom have a direct, common, and urgent interest in clarifying and securing the ownership of the developing world's lands and resources. 

Conference co-conveners—RRI, Oxfam, the International Land Coalition, IUCN, and HELVETAS Swiss Intercooperation—recognized that what we, and the entire international community, have been doing on this issue is not enough, and have called for doubling the amount of land recognized as owned or controlled by Indigenous Peoples and local communities by 2018.  It's a big number, but we think it's possible! 

Learn more about the outcomes of the Conference in this 5 minute video!
