Tirana Declaration

Assembly of Members 2011, Tirana, Albania 

The Tirana Declaration was issued by ILC members at the international conference "Securing Land Access in Times of Intensified Natural Resource Competition". The Declaration noted that land and other natural resources were scarce and under threat and called on all actors to actively promote pro-poor, people-centered and environmentally sustainable governance of land.  The Declaration soundly denounced the growing practice of “land grabbing” and included a commonly agreed upon definition of this phenomenon.
