Conservation and "Land Grabbing" in Rangelands: Part of the Problem or Part of the Solution?
The International Land Coalition's Rangelands Initiative Issue Paper No. 5 examines the complex and evolving relationship between land rights and conservation. Drawing on a wide range of examples, it makes a series of recommendations for more strategic action to achieve win-win outcomes for both conservation and local communities.
This paper stems from the meeting Conservation and Land Grabbing: Part of the Problem or Part of the Solution? that took place in March 2013. Stakeholders from conservation NGOs, development organisations, and indigenous/community rights came together to explore interactions between conservation, land acquisitions, and community land rights. The meeting was organised by the International Institute of Environment and Development (IIED)’s
Poverty and Conservation Learning Group (PCLG), in collaboration with the International Land Coalition (ILC), Zoological Society of London, and Maliasili Initiatives.
