Language of the event: 

JUNE 6TH 14:00 - 15:00 SAST



The aim of this event is increasing public understanding of the links between climate change, disasters, and land tenure rights, and bringing land tenure issues in the climate change discourse, listening particularly to the voices of civil society and youth. The discussion is also expected to bring forth some ideas for action both for the new GFAR Collective Action on land tenure and climate change, and for policy makers.    

The event will feature a panel discussion on how the lack of land rights as well as land tenure insecurity affect resilience to climate disasters, how public awareness of this nexus and subsequent policies are lacking, and how increased awareness, better documentation and inclusion of the rural poor in decision making can help mainstream land rights in the climate discourse.

The event is co-organized by: the Global Forum on Agricultural Research and Innovation (GFAR), the Young Professionals for Agricultural Development (YPARD), the Asian NGO Coalition for Agrarian Reform and Rural Development (ANGOC), and the Land Portal Foundation.
