Commitment 7: Fostering Inclusive Decision-Making in Land Governance and Land Use

Science for Action: Commitment 7

This brief refers to Commitment Seven, to: Ensure that processes of decision-making
over land are inclusive, so that policies, laws, procedures and decisions concerning land adequately reflect the rights, needs and aspirations of individuals and communities who will be affected by them. This requires the empowerment of those who otherwise would face limitations in representing their interests, particularly through support to land users’ and other civil society organisations (CSO) that are best able to inform, mobilise and legitimately represent marginalised land users, and their participation in multi-stakeholder platforms (MSP) for policy dialogue.

It is based on the research of the Centre for Development and Environment (CDE), Nitlapan and Collaborating for Resilience (CoRe).
