Namati and Natural Justice are thrilled to announce a new resource for practitioners working to protect community lands and resources! Read more about the book and download it here.
This book shares case studies written by expert advocates from across Africa who originally gathered for a three-day symposium in 2013 to share experiences and practical strategies for effectively supporting communities to protect their lands and natural resources.
Since the symposium, pressures on community land and natural resource rights have only increased. It is more necessary than ever to share strategies, successes, lessons, and resources across a wide network of local practitioners, legal champions, policy advocates, media allies, and supporters. This book is a contribution to this larger discussion.
We welcome comments, suggestions of other resources, and questions - let us continue the discussion! Perhaps some of our contributing authors would like to add reflections or comments about the symposium or the process of collaborating to produce this book? Or perhaps there are updates to the cases that you profiled? @badara113 @teresaeilu @jeremyakin @sonkitaconteh @rachaelknight
