In this webinar, speakers take us through what ‘building back better’ looks like, by keeping land rights at the centre of the global discourse.
Supporting the struggles of local land-users and communities to own, control and manage their land and natural resources is a long-term effort. It is complex, challenging and takes time. COVID19 has severely disrupted these efforts around the world, and the experiences of ILC members have already shown that the current crisis has a direct impact on land rights. Protecting land rights should be a part of the urgent task of mitigating the crisis and aiding the immediate recovery.
