Together with environmental justice and human rights groups from poor and developing countries, Both ENDS works towards a sustainable, fair and inclusive world.
The vision of Both ENDS is a world where long-term environmental sustainability and social equity take priority over short-term profits.
The vision of the Land Portal Foundation is to improve land governance to benefit those with the most insecure land rights and the greatest vulnerability to landlessness through information and knowledge sharing.
Webinar Series: Whose Land? Inclusive Pathways to Land Governance
The Land Portal Foundation and Both ENDS launched the Whose Land? Inclusive Pathways to Land Governance webinar series in 2022. The four-part webinar series provides a platform for different 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.
Each webinar considers what inclusivity means in practice through the lens of local communities, open data, gender equity, and donor funding, respectively. They explore how inclusivity can be better embedded in the programming and policies of those aiming to advance people-centered land governance.
Led by expert moderators, each webinar features diverse voices from all parts of the world.
- Webinar 1: How can civil society actors ensure inclusivity in their land governance work with communities?
- Webinar 2: Empowering civil society and communities through open land data
- Webinar 3: Showcasing transformative approaches for women’s land rights
- Webinar 4: Inclusive finance for land governance: A conversation with donors
About Land Portal
The Land Portal Foundation believes access to information is crucial to achieve good land governance and to secure land rights for vulnerable people. We help partners to create and disseminate land governance data and information through linked and open data technologies. The work of the Land Portal therefore strives to improve the documentation, mapping and monitoring of land governance issues. This serves to democratise the information ecosystem and strengthen flows of land governance data, from all perspectives and all levels. Finally the Land Portal promotes, informs and enriches the global debate on land issues.
About Both ENDS
Both ENDS is a human rights and environmental justice organisation working towards a world in which human rights are respected, gender justice is realised, and the environment is fostered and protected, thus assuring a life in dignity and prosperity for all. Our mission is to strengthen civil society globally to gain critical influence over decisions and activities that affect people’s rights and the environment. We are a Dutch NGO with an international network of civil society organisations working from the grassroots up to the global level. Our network of partner organisations around the world is, and always has been, the starting point of our actions.
The second webinar of the Whose Land? - Inclusive Pathways to Land Governance series focused on the opportunities and constraints of civil society in advocating for more open land data and in harnessing its power for improved land governance.
Empowering women to occupy leadership roles and to take an active part in decision making processes in land governance has demonstrated that strides can be made towards gender justice.
