Community Land Rights Conference, Stockholm

Last week, ISLP Director of Community Inclusive Development Monika Mehta attended a Community Land and Resource Rights Conference in Stockholm. The Conference entitled “Reducing inequality in a turbulent world: Scaling-up strategies to secure indigenous, community and women’s land rights” took place over the 4th and 5th October 2017. It is the largest international Conference advancing joint efforts to secure the land and resource rights of Indigenous Peoples, local communities, and rural women.

 

The Conference was a fantastic opportunity to engage with other individuals and organizations working in the Land Rights space. There was an impressive array of guest speakers, panels and strategy discussion groups finishing with a ‘Looking Ahead’ session and a Call to Action. An Innovation Zone ran alongside the more formal plenaries, designed to promote information and skills sharing through practical demonstration.    

 

ISLP would like to thank all those who attended and spoke at the conference and to the organizers. Please click here or see #landrightsnow for more information.
