In order to further benefit from the great wealth of
experiences among Brot für die Welt partner organizations, the idea of a good practice study was born. When, in 2020, the Covid-19 pandemic made travelling impossible, Brot für die Welt and partner organizations developed the concept of a decentralised, participatory study process. Twelve partner organisations joined the initiative and produced documentary films and reports on their good practice experiences in land rights work under the coordination of a team of consultants. The technical guidance by the consultants had the additional benefit that some partners improved their design and produced films and reports that could be used for their own training and education programs, and also for their fundraising. The studies were presented in an internet-based exchange during six workshops in which partner organisations reflected on approaches in different contexts. This study draws key lessons from the eight individual reports and eight documentary films produced by Brot für die Welt partners on their good practices in land rights work. Throughout the document cross-references to those original studies are provided and give a glimpse into their richness.
