Lobbying for Land Rights
This transnational project lobbies for land rights in Ethiopia, Sierra Leone, Liberia, and Burkina Faso. Five veteran Welthungerhilfe partners are conducting training and professional development programmes for 80 civil society representatives. The objective is to invest in agriculture in a manner that improves food security while preventing land grabs (e.g. by big businesses). Dialogue between the government, the private sector, and civil society is being reinforced and restructured to meet this goal. We believe policies should be based on the right to food.
