The project “Increase the use of the Voluntary Guidelines on Responsible Governance of Tenure of Land, Fisheries and Forests in the Context of National Food Security among CSOs and grassroots organizations” has started in September 2014 thanks to a contribution of the Kingdom of Belgium. Its first phase, ended in December 2015, has involved seven countries: Guatemala, South Africa, Malawi, Myanmar, Niger, Senegal and Nepal. In these countries, between 60 and 100 people have been trained on the Voluntary Guidelines, and from 200 to 2 500 people per country have been sensitized on the Voluntary Guidelines through information campaign with meetings, radio programmes, videos and newsletters. Towards the end of the first phase of the project, we have put in place a lessons learned stocktaking exercise to share the experiences of the seven countries and to identify the main lessons learnt and best practices to strengthen Civil society participation in the implementation of the Voluntary Guidelines.
