EMPLOYMENT: Consultancy -- Land Tenure Security & Food Security (ILC)

In April 2010, the ILC secretariat developed a paper entitled Links between Land Tenure Security and Food Security, as a contribution to the Updating of the High Level task Force’s Comprehensive Framework for Action. This document was based on a consultation with members, the outcomes of which were systematised into 12 ‘principles’ linking land tenure security and food security. This provided a valuable analysis of the statements and experiences of ILC members whose work has given them insights in this regard.

The ILC secretariat intends to use this document, and the outcomes of the consultation, as a base for further analysis of evidence from the field on the links between food security and tenure security over land and natural resources. These TORs outline the tasks and outputs of two consultants who will develop this product.
