General

The present project aims to ensure participation of leading civil society organisations in the activities of the Global Call to Action on Indigenous and Community Land Rights and more specifically the Global Land Forum, which will be held in Dakar from May 11 to May 17. As such it aims to ensure that the perspectives of communities, whose land rights are not recognized nor secured, are represented at the global policy level. Balanced participation of women and women's organizations will be sought. The project aims to ensure participation of leading African CSO’s, such as Ujamaa Community Resource Team, Pastoral Women’s Council, Tanzania Natural Resource Forum, Kenya Land Alliance, Kivulini Trust, Sustainable Development Institute, Center for Environment and Development, Centro Terra Viva, and others. The overall strategy and theory of change of the Global Call to Action is to bring about changes that enable and support the recognition of community land rights at the national scale, where such rights and tenure governance institutions are determined. The Global Call to Action does this through a range of strategic and collaborative actions that aim to support the ability of local communities and civil society organizations to bring about key national reforms; and to create an overall enabling environment that is more supportive of community land rights at the global scale.
