​The Land & Accountability Research Centre (LARC) at the University of Cape Town commissioned the vivid documentary film This Land as a way for rural people to bring the untold story of their struggle for rights and accountability on communal land into urban forums of legislative, political and corporate decision-making. This film is a critical contribution to the accelerating national debate about rights relating to land use and ownership in deep rural areas seldom visited by thought leaders, policymakers and legislators.

Large-scale acquisition of land in the global South has received a great deal of interest in the last few years. Especially following the food crisis, and stimulated by the growing demand for biofuels, pressure on land continues to increase. This course provides a multidisciplinary analysis of the ‘land rush’ within the more general context of land governance in Africa, Asia and Latin America: the history and drivers, the diversity of stakeholders and networks involved, the urgency and current challenges, and innovative governance solutions.

As 2018 came to a close, Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary named “justice” their Word of the Year. It was a top search throughout 2018, and for good reason. Justice remains out of reach for billions of people worldwide.

We have a chance to change that in 2019. That’s why we’re naming this the Year of Justice. 

Join our upcoming webinar to learn how we can advance justice for all in 2019.

In 2017, the fifth anniversary of the landmark Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure (VGGTs) highlighted successful integration of VGGT principles into national law and decision-making processes across several countries. The uptake of the Guidelines has steadily grown in the past five years, aided by the development of tools and resources and further supported by an umbrella programme at FAO that has carried these processes forward in 60 countries.

Land use and reforms are at the heart of Kenya’s political and economic future stability. Land is an enabler to support manufacturing, access to affordable and decent housing, universal health care, food security and nutrition.  Land is a critical driver in urban development through regulating access to land and use to achieve security of tenure for all.

Now, as the official process around the Sustainable Development Goals is beginning, it is critical that the land sector works together effectively. Therefore, Habitat for Humanity (Solid Ground Campaign), LandMark, Resource Equity, the Rights and Resources Initiative and the Land Portal Foundation want to bring land stakeholders together to discuss the incredible momentum around land and data. We want to determine an action plan to ensure that the data and monitoring initiatives will result in concrete actions to secure land rights!
