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.

Efforts to combat deforestation are at the forefront of the international aid agenda, and clarifying and securing land rights is important for its success.

La organización Front Line Defenders ha documentado 821 casos de Defensores de Derechos Humanos (DDH) asesinados en los últimos cuatro años, desde que empezó a establecer un listado general a nivel mundial en cooperación con ONG nacionales e internacionales. El 79% de este total se produjo en seis países: Brasil, Colombia, Guatemala, Honduras, México y Filipinas. La gran mayoría de estos casos no ha sido debidamente investigada, y sólo unos pocos responsables de estos crímenes han sido llevados ante la justicia.
