ARTICULATING FOR TRANSFORMATION: MULTI-STAKEHOLDER PLATFORMS FOR LAND GOVERNANCE
OCTOBER 16 – 09:00 A.M. LIMA
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) have highlighted the importance of establishing inclusive alliances to comply with the 2030 Agenda, as well as the need of facing inequality, as expressed in their motto: leaving no one behind. In line with these assumptions, many land governance organizations have been promoting the creation of Multi-stakeholder Platforms and other spaces for articulation, where – meeting specific needs in each context – the civil society, government, private and intergovernmental sectors gather together for the promotion of dialogue and agreement, providing joint solutions to current problems in rural territories.
These spaces for dialogue and collaboration are achieving different characteristics, challenges, and outcomes. In this session of the Land Forum, we will present the experiences of several multi-stakeholder dialogues, where the sum of forces has made an impact on the lives of the people who live in and on the land, favoring equity and inclusion of groups traditionally excluded from development processes in many territories of the region.
Experiences to be shared include some multi-stakeholder platforms promoted by the International Land Coalition – with more than 60 platforms in 30 countries, 17 out of them in LAC – that inform policies to achieve more inclusive land governance through strategies ranging from knowledge generation to advocacy and capacity building.
