Organisational strengthening and protection of land rights

With the support of many organisations, the newly elected leadership of the local farming community of Santa Catalina de Moza has committed to respect, protect and strengthen land rights, by registering and geo-referencing family and community land. The community has adopted new administrative and technical tools to manage and control their communal land, which will in turn help to legally secure their tenure. The success of the project sets an important precedent for the strengthening of land governance in the mountain territories of Peru.
