Enabling voices, demanding rights: enhancing community and women participation in decision making processes in land investment
In 2018, the International Institute for Sustainable Development and Oxfam developed a new resource entitled Enabling Voices, Demanding Rights: A guide to gender-sensitive community engagement in large scale land-based investment. This step-by-step, practical “how to” guide is designed to support communities, especially women, as they look to increase their participation and voice their interests in decisions around agricultural land investments.

The tool provides a framework that operationalizes international and regional guidance on land governance and responsible investment in agriculture. It ensures that they are able to make informed decisions based on the latest developments in these areas, such that they can reap sufficient benefits out of them if and when an investment is agreed.

This webinar will present a brief introduction of the guide. It will begin with an overview of the key steps in agriculture-related land investments, defining what community engagement looks like in that context. The second half of the webinar will highlight emerging evidence and provide examples from the tool’s pilot phase, seeing how the tool can be adapted and applied.
