Science for Action series
The Science for Action Series is jointly coordinated by the International Land Coalition (ILC) and the Global Land Programme (GLP). It brings together key findings from research networks relevant to ILC ten commitments to People-Centred Land Governance. The Series facilitates an exchange of knowledge between scientists, civil society, and grassroots organisations to strengthen efforts of land users, practitioners and policy-makers to bring about positive change in land governance.
Science for Action: INCLUSIVE DECISION-MAKING
This brief refers to Commitment Seven, to: Ensure that processes of decision-making over land are inclusive, so that policies, laws, procedures and decisions concerning land adequately reflect the rights, needs and aspirations of individuals and communities who will be affected by them. This requires the empowerment of those who otherwise would face limitations in representing their interests, particularly through support to land users’ and other civil society organisations (CSO) that are best able to inform, mobilise and legitimately represent marginalised land users, and their participation in multi-stakeholder platforms (MSP) for policy dialogue.
It is based on the research of the Centre for Development and Environment (CDE), Nitlapan and Collaborating for Resilience (CoRe).
Commitment 7: Inclusive Decision-Making
The International Land Coalition, the Global Land Programme and their partners seek to ensure that decision-making in relation to land use and governance is inclusive and all key stakeholders, including marginalised groups, and their interests are represented.
