15/11/2021 - Abstract: L’Organisation des Nations-Unies pour l’Alimentation et l’Agriculture (FAO) a appuyé le Sénégal pour mettre en place les principes issus des Directives volontaires pour une Gouvernance responsable des régimes fonciers applicables aux terres, aux pêches et aux forêts dans le contexte de la sécurité alimentaire nationale (DV). Des mécanismes de concertations multi-acteurs ont émergé au niveau national et local afin de garantir une concertation et une prise de décision inclusives lors du processus de réforme de la politique foncière au Sénégal. Des solutions concrètes et innovantes en matière de gouvernance foncière ont également été mises en place au niveau local pour favoriser l’accès à la terre des populations les plus vulnérables. Ces avancées permettent d’obtenir des résultats sur le long terme en améliorant la sécurité alimentaire, la gestion des ressources naturelles et la résilience des communautés face au changement climatique.

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”.
