National Engagement Strategies - often referred to as “NES” – are multi-stakeholder platforms set in motion by the International Land Coalition (ILC). They are led by national actors, and include ILC members and partners to promote people-centred land governance.
NES platforms are helping to simplify and unpack land governance complexities by setting priorities and suggesting solutions to some of the most difficult land‑related issues in a country. By working with existing networks, NES platforms are promoting collaboration and bridging
the gap between government, the private sector, civil society including grassroots organisations, international agencies, traditional authorities and academia.
Together, these actors develop country strategies and initiate multi-year action plans to influence the formulation and implementation of inclusive policies and legal frameworks.
They use ILC’S 10 commitments to people-centred land governance as a compass, while promoting the Voluntary Guidelines for Land Tenure (VGGTs).
