Securing land rights is critical for realizing sustainable food systems that provide food security and overcome poverty. Security of property rights is central to preserving livelihoods, maintaining social stability, and increasing incentives for investment and for sustainable, productive land use.
During the session at the Food Systems Summit, this dialogue will include a plenary session that features eminent speakers, which will be followed by facilitated discussions on key actions necessary to obtain secure tenure and thus achieving sustainable food systems for women, indigenous peoples and pastoral communities. The aim is to reach a concrete set of resolutions from a diverse range of stakeholders that will feed into the Food Systems Summit.
