    Asistimos actualmente al desarrollo de un conjunto de leyes y de prácticas que excluyen a los pescadores artesanales y a sus comunidades del control de los recursos pesqueros. Cuando se trata el tema de los fenómenos de acaparamiento, la cuestión de los recursos pesqueros se considera secundaria y despierta escaso interés. Sin embargo, la pesca y la acuicultura son fundamentales para la supervivencia económica de millones de personas1 . Además, la actividad pesquera resulta esencial para garantizar la seguridad alimentaria mundial.

    On assiste actuellement au développement d’un ensemble de lois et de pratiques qui excluent les pêcheurs artisanaux et leurs communautés du contrôle des ressources halieutiques. Lorsque l’on évoque les phénomènes d’accaparements, un intérêt très faible et secondaire est généralement accordé à la question des ressources halieutiques. Pourtant, la pêche et l’aquaculture sont à la base de la survie économique de millions de personnes1. De même, l’activité halieutique est essentielle pour garantir la sécurité alimentaire mondiale.

    Synthesis Workshop 3 - World Forum on Access to Land

    We are currently seeing the development of a set of laws and practices preventing artisanal fishermen and their communities from having rights to fishing stock. The topic of halieutic resources generally provokes little interest when raised in relation to natural resources grabbing, despite the fact that millions of people’s income earning rely on fishing and aquaculture1. In the same way, fishing is vital to ensuring global food security. In many countries, fish is the largest source of high-quality animal protein for people and form an important part of their diet.

    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.

    Los territorios forestales, al igual que el resto de los recursos, están acaparados. Algunas empresas, muy a menudo con el apoyo de los estados, los degradan y despojan a las poblaciones locales de su ámbito natural o de los recursos de los que dependen sus condiciones de vida.
