CALL FOR PROPOSALS: Family Farming and People-Centered Land Governance (ILC)

The International Land Coalition (ILC) will award a small number of grants for research activities (USD 8000) that focus on the intersection between land rights and family farming and contribute to a deeper understanding of how land governance can better respond to the needs and tap the potential of family farmers and small-scale food producers.

Research projects are expected to:

  1. Identify those land governance norms, mechanisms, institutions and practices that better respond to the needs of family farming and tap the potential of small-scale food production systems;
  2. Contribute to a better definition of family farming in specific contexts – actors, practices, needs, challenges, opportunities – for both women and men, and with an effort to capture different positions, interests, and land-related inequalities within families;

To do this, research proposals can focus on a specific country or region, and should discuss challenges, successful experiences and practical policy recommendations on one or more of the following areas:
