ILC, The International Land Coalition, has over 150 member organisations ranging from intergovernmental organisations to research institutes to farmers' organisations working for secure land tenure for poor women and men through advocacy, dialogue and capacity building.Besides the normative work ILC supports CSOs in the South with project funding.


ILC's collective goal as a network is to realise land governance for and with people at the country level, responding to the needs and protecting the rights of those who live on and from the land. During the 2015 Assembly of Members, held in Dakar, Senegal on the 15th of May 2015, members of the Coalition adopted a new Strategy for the period 2016-2021. ILC has defined 10 commitments to realise peoplecentred land governance at the country level. All ILC members individually and collectively contribute to the realisation of these commitments in policy, practice and agenda setting at their respective level of action. These commitments are the benchmark by which ILC members work towards the implementation of the VGGTs (Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure) and other internationally agreed instruments to achieve: - Secure tenure rights - Strong small scale farming systems - Diverse tenure systems - Equal land rights for women - Secure territorial rights for indigenous peoples - Locally managed ecosystems - Inclusive decision making - Transparent and accessible information - Effective actions against land grabbing - Protection for land rights defenders
