    Au même titre que les autres ressources, les territoires forestiers sont accaparés. Des entreprises, souvent avec l'appui des États, dégradent ces territoires et dépossèdent les populations locales de leurs lieux de vie ou des ressources dont dépendent leurs conditions de vie. Ces territoires sont mis en péril par des concessions d'exploitation des forêts et des ressources minières, des projets hydroélectriques ou d’infrastructures de transport, des concessions touristiques, de chasse, par l'expansion des surfaces agricoles ou encore l'exploitation illégale de bois.

    Workshop 13 Synthesis - World Forum On Access To Land

    Conference Papers & Reports
    January, 2017
    Global

    Every day, more and more family/small holder users of land and natural resources find themselves made more insecure, deprived of their resources and evicted from their land. This affects peasants, nomadic herders, livestock farmers, fishermen and fisherwomen, forest dwellers … (Workshops 1, 2, 3, 5). This change is a dramatic one, affecting the whole of humanity. The direct human consequences of this change affect the vast majority of rural residents, who carry out the essential work of food production and contribute to maintaining ecological balance.

    Chaque jour, toujours plus de femmes et hommes utilisateurs familiaux et communautaires des terres et ressources naturelles sont précarisés, dépossédés de leur ressources et évincés de leurs territoires : paysannes et paysans, pasteurs nomades, éleveurs, pêcheurs, habitants des forêts… (ateliers 1, 2, 3, 5). Cette évolution est dramatique pour l’ensemble de l’humanité : ses conséquences humaines directes concernent l’immense majorité des ruraux, qui assurent l’essentiel de la production des aliments et contribuent au maintien des équilibres écologiques.

    Cada día, más mujeres y hombres, usuarios familiares y comunitarios de tierras y recursos naturales, son precarizados, despojados de sus recursos y expulsados de sus territorios: campesinas y campesinos, pastores nómadas, ganaderos, pescadores, habitantes de los bosques… (Talleres 1, 2, 3, 5). Esta evolución es dramática para el conjunto de la humanidad: sus consecuencias directas afectan a la inmensa mayoría de campesinos, que representan el grueso de la producción de alimentos y contribuyen al mantenimiento del equilibrio ecológico.

    The Quest for Knowledge, Recognition and Participation in Decision Making Processes

    Conference Papers & Reports
    March, 2017
    Tanzania

    Land is one of the terrains of struggle for most rural women in Africa because of its importance in sustaining rural livelihoods, and social-cultural and geopolitical factors that hinder women from enjoying land rights. Even when there are progressive land laws, as it is for Tanzania, women have not really enjoyed their rights. However, this has not stopped women to keep fighting for their land rights.  They have sought their own approaches by leveraging opportunities within traditional, religious, and formal systems standing for their rights.
