what we do
Together with Namati, and the International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED), the Community Land Protection Initiative is equipping ILC members with the practical skills to support communities to document and protect their indigenous and customary lands.
The initiative offers selected ILC members a unique opportunity and to engage in cutting-edge community land protection efforts and embark on a year-long peer-to-peer learning journey.
Each year, a select number of participants teach one another their most successful fieldwork strategies, collaborate on innovate solutions to complex problems, and pool their knowledge and expertise in ways that can then offer lessons to members across ILC’s network.
Today, the Community Land Protection Learning Initiative contributes to strengthening of local land rights struggles in nine countries.
