From the 19th to the 20th of September, Gino Cocchiaro (Natural Justice) is attending the International Conference on Scaling-up Strategies to Secure Community Land and Resource Rights in Interlaken, Switzerland.
There is growing acknowledgement that lack of community land and resource rights has become a global crisis that undermines our progress for social, spiritual and economic well-being. Natural Justice continues to work with its community partners, advise national governments and business to address these critical issues. The meeting in Interlaken will therefore serve to:
- Collect and share best practice on community land rights with a range of stakeholders, including communities, governments, civil society and private investors;
- Raise the profile of community land rights as a priority issues to shape key investment and policy processes in ways to support local land and resource tenure;
- Provide a forum for the new collaborations and alliances between the different actors and interests around community land and resource issues.
