El reconocimiento de derechos es crucial para abordar el calentamiento global y el cambio climático

Los pueblos indígenas han tenido durante milenios un historial de gestión sostenible de los paisajes. Sin embargo, las incursiones en sus territorios, a menudo por colonos involucrados en la extracción de recursos naturales o la agricultura, han fracturado sus derechos históricos de tenencia, desmantelando o poniendo en riesgo los medios de vida, la vida silvestre y los ecosistemas.

Land is a topic that is debated in many languages, across different (academic) disciplines and in all parts of the world. Furthering our collective agenda, sharing and learning from knowledge and perspectives from other contexts, or transitioning technological innovations from one country to the other is complicated by - among many other aspects - language and terminology barriers.  Many attempts have been made in the past to find common definitions and terminologies for issues related to land, but a wide consensus or adoption has never been reached. Understandably so: one can only imagine the heated and controversial discussion to reach agreement on what we mean exactly when we use the word ‘property’.

Earlier this year, in honor of International Open Data Day, which took place on March 2nd, we put out a call, asking Land Portal users and any and all interested to submit their very own data stories to the Land Portal.  What we were looking for were stories that were unique and original, and that presented data in innovative and engaging ways.  We realized that this was no easy feat, but each and every one of the submissions we received made inventive use of photos, quotes, maps and infographics to tell compelling stories.  In the end, the be

La organización Front Line Defenders ha documentado 821 casos de Defensores de Derechos Humanos (DDH) asesinados en los últimos cuatro años, desde que empezó a establecer un listado general a nivel mundial en cooperación con ONG nacionales e internacionales. El 79% de este total se produjo en seis países: Brasil, Colombia, Guatemala, Honduras, México y Filipinas. La gran mayoría de estos casos no ha sido debidamente investigada, y sólo unos pocos responsables de estos crímenes han sido llevados ante la justicia.

This July is the first time the United Nations will review the progress made towards meeting Sustainable Development Goal 15, which is about Life on Land. Each goal will be reviewed about every 4 years until 2030.

The reviews will be based on the 10 indicators countries agreed on, that assess change in each country over time. Two important developments relating to the indicator on land degradation neutrality (15.3.1) have occurred, since its adoption in 2015.

With several land-related indicators included in the Sustainable Development Goals, the land sector now has the unique opportunity to create an unprecedented momentum around land tenure issues and bring it to a higher level on the development agenda. Our goal is, of course, to contribute to the success of the SDGs, but also to be part of sustainable development in its real and practical sense!
