3. Diversification des régimes fonciers

Reconnaître et protéger les divers régimes fonciers et systèmes de production dont dépendent les moyens de subsistance des communautés notamment les systèmes fonciers communaux et coutumiers des petits exploitants, des peuples autochtones, des pasteurs, des pêcheurs et des personnes ayant des droits à la terre et aux autres ressources naturelles concurrents, changeants et temporaires, même lorsque ces droits ne sont pas reconnus par la loi, tout en reconnaissant que le bien-être des utilisateurs de ces ressources puisse être affecté par des changements allant bien au-delà des limites des terres sur lesquelles ils détiennent des droits fonciers

Global Policy

The lack of clarity and recognition of community land and resource rights across the developing world has become a global crisis undermining progress on social and economic development, human rights, peace, food security, environmental conservation, and our ability to confront and adapt to climate change. ILC brings together members and partners to advocate at international level for greater recognition and protection of diverse tenure systems, including through providing a rationale and modalities for the effectiveness of such tenure systems and launching a Global Call to Action for greater recognition of community and indigenous peoples' land rights.

People living in rangelands have developed natural resource management and tenure systems that are locally adapted appropriate to the unique features of rangelands. However, their land and resource rights are weak and often violated. The ILC Rangelands Initiative is working with governments, ILC members, partners and the communities they represent, in order to open space for dialogue on positive change, develop better policy and legislation, improve implementation through piloting and scaling-up of good practice, and documenting guidelines and lessons learned.
