Investing responsibly in agricultural land
20/09/2019 - Abstract: Land-based investments in development countries can be very risky, in part because in these settings there is a weak governance of land rights and land is often governed by “customary” rights. Investors can cope with these risk by applying the principles of the ‘’Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure of Land, Fisheries and Forest in the Context of National Food Security’’. In this way, investors can reduce investment risk and carry out socially responsible and financially sustainable investments that respect legitimate tenure rights, human rights and the environment. This video introduces the e-learning course “Responsible governance of tenure: a technical guide for investors”.

What's on the Horizon?
17/07/2017 - Abstract: The Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure of Land, Fisheries and Forests in the Context of National Food Security is the first global exhaustive tool on the tenure of land and natural resources developed through an open inter-governmental process with the full and effective participation of a vast array of relevant actors. In such document, internationally accepted principles and norms were established to define responsible practices for the use and control of land, fisheries and forests. In the course of a long but highly successful negotiation process, civil society organizations and social movements had a significant impact in the development of the guidelines in a number of key points. Contributing with informed and compelling interventions, they brought forward the points of view, experiences, voices and proposals of small-scale food producers, family farmers and the sectors of the world’s population that are most exposed to food insecurity.

Caring for Commons - Securing legitimate rights
10/01/2017 - Abstract: Millions of people worldwide depend on natural resources such as land, fisheries and forests that are used collectively as commons. Commons are essential to culture, identity and well-being. As a source of food and income, they are an important safety-net, especially for the most marginalized and vulnerable people. The Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure of Land, Fisheries and Forests in the Context of National Food Security provide a historic opportunity to recognize and secure tenure rights to commons. This film explains key strategies on how to make responsible governance of tenure rights to commons a reality.
