Learning exchange on the collaboration of ILC’s intergovernmental and civil society members on land governance at the country level in Asia
8 Oct 2020, 3:30 PM Jakarta/Bangkok via Zoom
ILC Asia assists its members to build strategic and transformative programmes and provide seed support CSO members led platform in the strategy implementation. We support platforms that operate at the local, national, and international levels. Currently, ILC Asia supports 8 national multi-stakeholder platforms (National Engagement Strategies).
Those ILC CSO members led platforms at the country level promote People-Centered Land Governance, with a thematic focus on 4 major areas: (i) Land or agrarian reform (ii) Forest and Indigenous Peoples rights to land (iii) Rangeland and (iv) addressing land-grabbing and land-related conflicts.
Further, ILC includes in its membership several intergovernmental organisations working on land governance directly or indirectly, both at the country, sub-regional level, and regional level in Asia. While the technical and financial capacity of these institutions offers great possibilities to contribute to the ILC network efforts in Asia, the potential of these partnerships between ILC IGOs and CSOs members is largely untapped and is yet to be fully explored.
NES platforms take into account a plurality of members and initiatives and offer the possibility of promoting joint interventions to advance land governance at the country level, hence to develop practical collaborations with ILC IGOs and beyond.
The Asia Land Forum presents an opportunity to open the dialogue between ILC member IGOs and CSOs on their role and means to build long-term partnerships, on the opportunities and challenges of these collaborations at the country level.
To share and learn about current efforts of collaboration between IGOs and CSOs led platforms; discuss practical collaboration opportunities and challenges articulated around thematic priorities (Rangeland; Forest rights and IPs; Land policies and conflict management); receive feedback on potential collaboration mechanisms
- Experiences on promoting and advocating various thematic land policy and practice through national CSO led platform is captured
