Both ENDS and the Land Portal Foundation invite you to the fist webinar in the Whose Land? – Inclusive pathways to land governance series, which aims to provide a platform for stakeholders engaged in land governance to exchange on the importance of inclusivity and meaningful participation of all relevant actors in both formal and informal land governance processes.
The main objective of this webinar series is to facilitate sharing and exchange around the topic of inclusion in land governance initiatives and what this means in practice. The webinars will explore how inclusivity can be better embedded in the programming and policies of those aiming to advance people-centered land governance.
This first webinar in the series will focus on the role of civil society organizations (CSOs) in ensuring that land governance processes at the community level are implemented in an inclusive, just and participatory way. Local CSOs possess a wealth of knowledge and experience on the effectiveness of specific practices, as well as the strategies, tools and considerations that contribute to successful land justice efforts. At the same time, they are faced with diverse local conditions in which a variety of different apparent and more hidden power imbalances prevail.
