Putting the voluntary guidelines on tenure into practice : a learning guide for civil society organizations Paperback / softback
This learning guide is designed to give civil society and grassroots organizations a deeper understanding of the Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure of Land, Fisheries and Forests in the Context of National Food Security (VGGT), and a solid training methodology.
It provides a set of materials to undertake training from the grassroots to the national level, using an experiential approach where participants directly apply the VGGT to the issues affecting themselves and their communities.
The VGGT represent the first global agreement on the tenure of land and other natural resources developed through an open inter-governmental process with the full and effective participation of civil society and a vast array of relevant actors.
They establish internationally accepted principles and norms to define responsible practice for the ownership, management, and use of land, fisheries and forests.The guidelines convey a powerful message: the responsible governance of tenure of natural resources supports the realization of the human rights of farmers, small-scale fishers, pastoralists, indigenous peoples, the landless, rural workers, youth, men and women.
