CELADA seeks to raise awareness of the issues surrounding land and resource transactions; promote and conduct research, dialogue and debate among local, regional and international decision-makers; and lobby relevant institutions and governments for improvements.
CELADA seeks to develop and strengthen partnerships with individuals, citizen groups, organizations, the business community and governments. Ultimately CELADA aims to engage those who care about ethical and sustainable development, social justice issues, and world security to shape the discussion and outcomes of the "coming age of Africa".
CELADA has adopted a triple-A strategy by promoting Awareness of land rights and associated issues, particularly in Africa; engaging in Advocacy on behalf of African farmers and pastoralists whose land rights are threatened; and engaging in Activism to promote their objectives.
The Coalition for Equitable Land Acquisitions and Development in Africa (CELADA) is an international campaign to end the indiscriminate alienation of African land to external and domestic commercial interests; to restore, reform and ensure sustainable land rights; and to promote equitable agricultural development, including land access, management and ownership for the African people.
