PUBLICATION: Securing the right to land
A recent issue of Farming Matters on a topic that is central to all small-scale farmers: land. Competition for land and power, and particularly the global increase of large scale land acquisitions, cause contestations about which land is rightfully owned and used by whom. This edition explores a range of responses by different stakeholders to land use in the face of an intensifying struggle for land. Using examples from all over the world, the land issue shows how both farmers’ initiatives and good land governance can have a positive impact on what seems to be an growing problem worldwide.
