OCTOBER 2015
The "Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure of Land, Fisheries and Forests in the Context of National Food Security” are referred to as the "Voluntary Guidelines" in this news flash.

Now available online: New Technical Guide on “Safeguarding land tenure rights in the context of agricultural investment”


This technical guide elaborates on specific aspects of the Voluntary Guidelines relating to agricultural investments by providing detailed guidance to government authorities and others on actions they can take to help them create an enabling environment for responsible and sustainable investments. In following this guidance and applying the principles of the Voluntary Guidelines, governments will be more likely to achieve their economic development goals by maximizing the shared benefits of both private and public investments and mitigating negative impacts. By creating incentives for inclusive business models that share value with local farmers and that do not imply the transfer of large areas of land, governments will be instrumental in achieving better living conditions and greater social justice for their people – a prerequisite for peace and stability.
