Building on our achievements

THE ILC NETWORK HAS BECOME A POWERFUL FORCE FOR CHANGE.

Over the last six years, ILC almost doubled its membership to become one of the foremost land rights networks, with almost 300 members covering 81 countries.

Our ambitious –but achievable– strategy to 2030 will be built on what we have accomplished together over the first 25 years.

When ILC was founded in 1996, land rights were almost invisible on international agendas. By the effort of many –including the ILC– this has now changed, and a growing body of regional and global commitments recognise the centrality of land rights.

In order to find lasting solutions, it’s clear that we cannot work in isolation. Land governance is a complex issue and the systems we seek to change are deeply rooted in unequal power relations.

"ILC has recorded changes at the policy and practice level that exceeds the targets it set itself. It did so by working as a global network while largely organising its work through transformative member-led platforms nationally, regionally and globally”.
