Assembly Report 2005

Land is Life

‘Land is Life’, the theme of the Second Global Assembly of the International Land Coalition, provided a holistic view of human development. The stories of members and partners who gathered in Santa Cruz, Bolivia from March 19 to 23, highlighted the complex factors of development: history, culture, ethnicity, gender, social relations, politics, economics, power and, in particular, the multi-faceted issues and systemic causes of poverty.
