INDIGENOUS YOUTH LEADER, OPDP
"Indigenous Peoples are at the forefront of addressing the climate crisis but are land insecure. Securing their land rights secures the indigenous knowledge systems that help mitigate and adapt to climate change. Land Justice is Climate Justice!"
"We hope that COP27 recognizes the central role of indigenous peoples' land rights and their traditional knowledge in addressing the climate crisis as we have highlighted in the Global Land Forum of Youth (GLFY) Declaration."
Co-chair of ilc council & ASSOCIATE VICE-PRESIDENT, IFAD
“Evidence shows that land tenure security can serve as a powerful tool to increase farmers' productive and conservational investment in their land, as well as to empower women. This shows the importance of respecting, protecting and strengthening land rights.”
Co-chair of ilc council & EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR GROOTS KENYA
"Land and nature are the greatest source of livelihood for humankind. Threats to land result in a negative change in human behavior that accelerates the climate crisis. Securing people's land rights is a pathway out of climate crisis. "
UN SPECIAL RAPPORTEUR ON THE RIGHT TO FOOD
"Climate change has to be addressed through understanding our relationship to the land. What is really exciting about the upcoming COP27 is that different actors will be able to come together and focus on something very concrete."
CAROLINA DE MOURA CAMPOS
LAND AND ENVIRONMENTAL DEFENDER
"COP27 leaders need to understand that it is no longer possible to continue drawing up goals and agreements on paper, we urgently need effective measures to mitigate and adapt to climate change"
Secretary General of the Asian Farmers' Association (AFA)
"COP 27 should highlight the growing concentration of land ownership, fueling the rise of food insecurity. Women, for example, who make up more than half of all farmers, own less than 20% of all land. This in turn pushes family farmers onto smaller parcels of land, worse, displacing them."
Director of the Agricultural Project Implementation Unit, Kyrgyz Ministry of Agriculture
"The Law on Pastures, adopted in 2009, had a major impact on the consciousness of pasture users. Legislative measures have strengthened the communities’ responsibilities for the state of pastures where their livestock grazes and for the restoration of pasture infrastructure."
