A areia é o segundo recurso mais consumido no mundo. O crescimento populacional e o aumento exponencial de seu uso estão colocando a sua disponibilidade em risco. Os seres humanos podem ficar sem areia em algumas décadas.

I want to thank IWRAW Asia Pacific for organising a two day strategic dialogue on Women Human Rights and Climate Justice. Some of the points shared here are points discussed at this dialogue in Bangkok in November 2019. 

I also want to thank contributions by Feminist Land Platform members, especially Farida Akhter of Bangladesh.

The land sector is increasingly being cited as a corruption hub. Many countries across the globe are grappling with land-related corruption that dates to the colonial years and which have metamorphosed into historical injustices and continue to be a source of conflict and violation of basic human rights. Cases of land grabbing, compensation-less expropriation, gender-based discrimination in accessing and ownership of land and related resources, illegal mining deals, bribing to access land administration services among others are not new in the lands sector.

L’autonomie paysanne a été l’un des thèmes choisis lors d’une réunion internationale autour des semences paysannes. Récit de débats parfois agités, toujours passionnants, pour identifier les freins à cette autonomie et partager des expériences pour tenter de l’atteindre.

La disputa por la tierra siempre ha puesto en tensión el poder económico y político. Actualmente, el derecho a la tierra no es concebido como un derecho humano fundamental en el ámbito internacional. Transitar por este camino es esencial para resolver problemas globales como la pobreza y el cambio climático con modelos y políticas que incluyan a todas las personas.

Quando falamos e estudamos sobre os Objetivos de Desenvolvimento Sustentável (ODS), percebemos a dicotomia do papel das mulheres em questões que tocam vários temas da Agenda 2030 das Nações Unidas. Enquanto elas são consideradas peças-chaves para o alcance de muitos dos ODS, representam também a parte mais afetada por muitos dos problemas discutidos nesse marco.
 
Land rights for cocoa farmers aren’t just good stewardship, they’re smart business

Last week the World Cocoa Foundation, a membership organization of more than 100 cocoa companies, held its annual partnership meeting in Berlin, Germany. The aim of the meeting is for governments, cocoa companies and farmers to identify and tackle the sector’s largest sustainability challenges. A 90-minute session was devoted to the topic of land tenure. The prominence of the session, as well as the seniority of the presenters – the Head of Sustainable Sourcing for Hershey’s and the Deputy Director General of Cote d’Ivoire’s Land Agency among them – is a powerful signaling effect.

In rural areas around the world, the face of a farmer is increasingly a woman’s.

From the paddy terraces of Asia to the maize fields of sub-Saharan Africa, she will till, plant, water, and harvest crops that feed her household and whole communities.
