The Community Land Protection Learning Initiative equips ILC members with the practical skills to support communities to document and protect their indigenous and customary lands. It builds a supportive cross-regional community of practice that facilitates learning between community land rights advocates. This webinar introduced some of the strategies members taught each other and then implemented back in their communities.
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
- Strategies and tools that help communities document and protect their indigenous and customary lands, and claim and exercise their rights.
- The benefits that come when women, youth and other minority groups are in the driving seat in the management of their land.
