Supporting Communities to Document and Protect their Land Rights: A New Step-by-Step Guide for Facilitators

Thu, Feb 25, 2016 3:00 PM - 4:30 PM GMT

Namati is launching an unprecedented new resource, unlike anything published in the field of land tenure security to date: a hands-on, step-by-step, practical “how to” guide for practitioners supporting communities to document and protect their land rights. With this Guide, Namati aims to inspire and support hundreds of organizations around the world to launch (or expand) grassroots community land protection efforts.

This Webinar will introduce Namati’s methodology and tools to professionals interested in undertaking community land protection efforts. The Webinar will be a concrete, hands-on review of Namati’s four-step approach, including: 1) laying the groundwork; 2) strengthening community governance of land and natural resources; 3) harmonizing boundaries and documenting/registering land claims; and 4) preparing communities to prosper. After a brief introduction of the Guide, including its intended audience and suggestions for use, the Webinar will review the components of each community land protection “step.”

The second half of the Webinar will be reserved for discussion of how best to adapt and apply such efforts to a wide variety of cultural and legal contexts. Practitioners are particularly encouraged to attend. We recommend that participants review the Guide prior to the Webinar in order for participants to come prepared with questions for discussion. Registered participants will be provided with a link to download a digital copy of the Guide.
