Working to Protect and Defend Community Land Rights in Africa

Wednesday 1 May 2019

Quaker Meeting House, 43 St Giles’, Oxford OX1 3LW

For Mokoro’s upcoming seminar, we look forward to welcoming Rachael Knight, who will share some of the experiences and insights she has gained from 15 years working at the forefront of community land rights.

Ms. Knight will begin by explaining the integrated community land protection process that she innovated in collaboration with local advocates, including all of the challenges, mistakes, and obstacles in the field that led to its creation. She will then discuss her recent research on the impacts of this process on communities in Nepal, Mozambique, Uganda and Liberia, two to five years after they completed their community land protection efforts. This data will then lead into a discussion of the forces that undermine local and indigenous land rights, and how to better support communities to defend their land claims, regenerate local ecosystems, revitalize local culture, and strengthen local land governance.

Robin Palmer from Mokoro will be chairing the event.
