To complement litigation efforts, an alternative and flexible mechanism to defending land rights is more effective — tailored to the local context and supporting communities to make informed decisions about what forms of redress to pursue
The fact that fewer new investments are being publicly recorded does not mean we should be complacent. Past deals are now being implemented, and communities are feeling the squeeze. Helping them obtain redress when violations occur is a priority.
We invite you to participate in the first biennial Investor Survey on Land Rights. The survey will track investor and operator perceptions and practices related to land tenure and property rights in land-based investments. The survey is being conducted by Indufor North America, managed by the Cloudburst Group, and initiated by USAID. The European Investment Bank is pleased to endorse this initiative.
