Conservation and Land Grabbing: Part of the Problem or Part of the Solution?
The 2013 Poverty and Conservation Learning Group (PCLG) Symposium examined the interactions between conservation, land rights and ‘land grabbing’ in a variety of global contexts. It encouraged more strategic engagement by the conservation movement in land rights and tenure concerns to help combat ‘land grabbing’ and benefit both conservation and development. Global and thematic perspectives were complemented with case studies from individual countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America. This report provides a summary of the symposium presentations, and highlights key messages and suggestions for follow-up activities to keep the debate alive and productive.

The Poverty and Conservation Learning Group is an international network of more than 100 conservation and development organisations that promotes learning on the linkages between biodiversity conservation and poverty reduction, in order to improve policy and practice. Individuals with an interest in poverty-conservation issues are also welcome to join the group to take advantage of the resources we offer, and to contribute to our work.
