ECVC infographic on small-scale farmers’ right to land

12 April 2021

We advocate for agrarian reform—a transformation of our relationship with the land to provide greater social and ecological justice, respecting rights, cultures, landscapes, the environment, and peoples’ food sovereignty. All frameworks for regulating agricultural land and natural resources must be based on Article 17 of the UN Declaration on the Rights of Peasants, which enshrines the right to land and natural resources, and on the CFS Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure (VGGT). Struggles for land have always been linked to social justice, and we reiterate that land is not a commodity but a right!
