Organisers: The Tenure Facility, Land Portal Foundation, Ford Foundation and the Thomson Reuters Foundation
When: April to November 2021.
The Tenure Facility, Land Portal Foundation and the Ford Foundation have proposed a series of Land Dialogues promoting the centrality of indigenous and community land rights in advancing global efforts to halt the climate crisis, achieving a healthy planet and forwarding the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
The dialogues will focus on the importance of formally recognising and securing the customary lands of Indigenous Peoples and local communities as a crucial contribution to the overall climate health of the planet.
Seven dialogues will take place spread out from April to October 2021 and will bring together the leading experts, indigenous leaders and others to highlight the role of indigenous and community land rights in relation to these issues. The dialogues will include a wide-range of creative spaces for knowledge sharing and dialogue engaging stakeholders and elevating the importance of land in the global agenda in a way that is easy to understand. The Land dialogues will be in English with simultaneous translation to Spanish, Portuguese and French.
