This guidebook comprises a collection of practices and strategies used by civil society organisations around the world working to advance inclusive land governance. The aim is to provide a source of inspiration as well as practical guidance that fellow actors can draw upon to strengthen their own work. It is based upon extensive expertise and experiences of organisations engaging in the struggle for land justice and is intended to offer advice and guidance through examples ‘from the field’, including Cameroon, Mozambique, Senegal and Zambia, that can help local organisations and communities formulate and pursue their own advocacy goals. Includes participatory mapping, legal empowerment and paralegal training, collective natural resource management and sustainable land use planning, women’s empowerment and leadership in land governance, movement and campaign building, ensuring inclusiveness in sustainable land use practices, engaging with decision makers, monitoring guideline compliance and implementation, dealing with conflict.
