Food security policy and governance
Land governance concerns the rules, processes and structures through which decisions are made about access to land and its use, the manner in which the decisions are implemented and enforced, and the way that competing interests in land are managed. Land governance is essential in achieving inclusive economic growth, sustainable development and food security. However, pressure on and competition for land increases due to globalisation of land market, speculation, urbanization, climate change and other land uses (tourism, nature conservation). In this topic, references are made to knowledge around rules and practices on access to and use of land which promote equitable and sustainable development and food security.
