How to promote transnational accountability in relation to “land grabbing”? Insights from a brainstorming event
This note summarises insights from a meeting convened by the Global Legal Action Network (GLAN) in collaboration with the International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED) and the Centre for Environment and Development (CED). The meeting aimed to kick-start a GLAN-led process aimed at exploring collaborative options to support communities in harnessing the law for promoting transnational accountability in the context of agricultural investments occurring in the Global South and involving EU based or linked companies and investors.
Around the world, citizens' groups are taking action to change the way investments in natural resources are happening, to protect the rights of citizens and the environment for a fairer and more sustainable world. The Legal Tools for Citizen Empowerment initiative shares tools and tactics among practitioners.
