AGTER: Governance of Natural resources, land in particular; we have co-organized the World Forum on Access to Land in 2016 and actually work for a new (virtual) one in 2021

Presence in: France
Focus: Environmental Justice

AGTER is an international non-profit association (under French law). It has been created in March 2005 by a group of people of different origins that took part in works or exchanges between actors of civil society organizations on the issues of access to natural resources and land.

They want to clarify the links between poverty, underdevelopment and access to resources, in order to set up lasting alternatives to the ongoing policies. AGTER aims at contributing to improve the governance of land, water and natural resources and at conceiving new ways of managing those resources, better adapted to face the challenges of the twenty-and-first century.

AGTER promotes a permanent thinking and learning process, in order to help civil society members and other concerned actors to get informed, to come up with and implement proposals.
