Webinar Video: Community Land Protection Facilitator’s Guide Overview

This video is a recording of a webinar outlining the five-part approach to protecting community land, as detailed in the Community Land Protection Facilitator’s Guide. The webinar was delivered by Rachael Knight, the director of Namati’s community land protection program and one of the guide’s main authors.

The Guide is a step-by-step, practical “how to” manual for grassroots advocates working to help communities protect their customary claims and rights to land and natural resources. The five-part process examines questions such as: “Who is included or excluded when defining a ‘community’?”, “How to resolve longstanding boundary disputes?”, and “How can communities prepare for interactions with potential investors?”

The video recording of the webinar serves as a helpful introduction to the Guide’s purpose, its content, and the possibilities for its application in communities around the world. It is 1 hour and 19 minutes in duration and can be watched below.

The Guide can be downloaded here.
