There are high hopes that the process of drawing up an international human rights instrument for the promotion and protection of peasant rights will soon be crowned with success: In September, the Human Rights Council decides whether the newly negotiated UN Declaration on the rights of peasants and other people working in rural areas will be sent to the United Nations’ General Assembly in New York for adoption. The Declaration not only reaffirms existing rights of peasants, but also incorporates new rights, such as the right to land, which is of particular importance to HEKS/EPER.

Around the world, insecure property rights prevent families from feeling confident about the future, businesses from investing, and communities from becoming more productive. Hundreds of millions of us lack property security. This makes the world poorer, less free, and less just.

There is a growing recognition of the need for change, but without accurate information, governments, business and civil society can’t understand the nature of the challenge or how to overcome it.
