Antigua Declaration

Assembly of Members, 2013, Antigua, Guatemala 

The Antigua Declaration was issued by ILC members at the conference " Inclusive and Sustainable Territorial Governance for Food Security: Sharing Lessons from Around the World".  The declaration recognised the need for land to be looked at not just as a productive asset, but to be valued for the various functions that it performs, including cultural, spiritual, and ecological functions.  It also highlighted land as a means of establishing the dignity and inclusiveness of people.
