General

We promoted international targets and indicators on women#s and community#s land rights. In 2014-2015, Oxfam participated in the discussions over the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda and its monitoring framework by: i) leading the coalition of civil society organizations on this issue, and partnering with UN Agencies, research organizations, governments, and Major Groups in New York; ii) facilitating common positions across various initiatives, and developing policy material; iii) engaging with the Global Donor Platform on Rural Development, the Global Land Indicator Initiative, the Committee on World Food Security; iv) and providing inputs in consultations related to the Agenda. As result, in alliance with others, we secured: i) three robust targets on land rights (1.4, 2.3 and 5a) in the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda; ii) three strong indicators in its monitoring framework; iii) The World Bank, UN-Habitat, and FAO taking steps to track progress; iv) growing consensus around land rights targetsand indicators, as testified by joint policy positions and technical documents; v) The CFS starting a monitoring exercise on the Voluntary Guidelines on the ResponsibleGovernance of Tenure in October 2016.
