We kept promoting 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, we # in alliance with others # secured: i) three robusttargets 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 targets and indicators, as testified by joint policy positions and technical documents; v) The CFS starting a monitoring exercise on the Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure in October 2016. In addition, in March 2016 we launched with allies the Land Rights Now campaign to increase political will around the issue of indigenous and community land rights, and support national influencing strategies. The campaign, which counts more than 600 organizations and communities, was launched through the flagship report #Common Ground# in 3 languages, launch events in 11 countries and a global mobilization week with more than 60 largely grassroots actions in 29 countries. The global campaign supported national campaigns in several countries gathering around 100k signatures.
