What policies and measures have proved useful to address land inequality so far? What can we learn from existing good practices? What should be the next steps to address land inequality?
The Land Inequality Initiative has analysed, based on good practice, possible policies and measures to address land inequality. There is no “one size fits all” solution. However, it is possible to identify some, to build on and adapt to specific contexts, regions, or countries, while noting that the land sector is in constant transformation.
This webinar analyses some of these measures and approaches - including land market regulations, agrarian reform and land distribution, land taxes, investors’ accountability, inclusive food chains, collective action and agroecology – with particular focus on their application in specific historical moments and contexts. It also discusses the way forward of the fight against land inequality – now that we know that land inequality is there and is rising, what to do to challenge it?
