“PEOPLE CENTERED LAND GOVERNANCE: SECURING COMMONS LAND USE RIGHTS TOWARDS IMPROVE LIVELIHOODS OF LOCAL COMMUNITIES IN ASIA”

In the Declaration adopted at the 2013 Global Land Forum of ILC, the members voiced their concern that "Agrarian economies are profoundly affected by corporate and other interests that are external to local territories, taking control of land, productive resources and food value chains, alienating land-users from their environment, and posing great risks of marginalizing small-scale producers and family farmers". As a follow-up to this Declaration, ILC adopted the People Centered Land Governance (PCLG) which reflects the principles of food sovereignty as reflected in the 10 commitments on PCLG.
