The general objective of this call is to contribute to improved food security, improved livelihoods and poverty alleviation as well as sound management of natural resources, in particular for female and male smallholder farmers and other users of natural resources, such as fisheries and forests.
Priorities and funded actions:
– to support vulnerable stakeholders in their claims to land access and help them to deal with the multiple challenges of the land governance process (recognition of rights, land transfers, consultation, compensation, benefit sharing mechanism, land disputes resolution, etc.)
– to favour the creation of a legitimate and sustainable mechanism of multi-stakeholders consultation for decision-making concerning the revision of legal frameworks, policy strategies and administrative regulations which influence the rights of access to, and use of, natural resources for diverse “rural actors”
– the issue of legal reform aimed to revise the access to and management of natural resources
– the issue of land market functioning and its monitoring
– the issue of administration of land tenure especially as regards to the recording of rights and the resolution of land disputes
Among financed actions
– development or reinforcement of existing platforms for joint initiatives of advocacy towards the political authorities
– feasibility studies, diagnostics, and joint proposals by the CSOs aiming to ameliorate the existing legal and policy instruments regulating natural resources exploitation
– support to local authorities and all other actors involved in the process of allocation, transfer and conflict resolution over tenure rights
– best practices exchanges and initiatives to follow-up on the application of recommendations and/or code of conducts at the local, national, regional and international level
