Según indicaciones de la FAO, más de 795 millones de personas en el mundo sufren de hambre, sobre todo en los países en vías de desarrollo. Esta situación no mejora a pesar de que la producción agrícola esté aumentando. El hambre es un problema de la distribución y del acceso a una alimentación adecuada. La desnutrición y la malnutrición (más de 600 millones de personas en los países industrializados sufren de sobrepeso y obesidad) aparecen por los mismos motivos: la destrucción de la soberanía alimentaria local y regional y la separación de la producción y del consumo de alimentos.

Join us for a webinar on 16 November to discuss how communities can use by-laws to secure their land rights.

Indigenous and rural communities that use customary land tenure systems are among the least likely populations to have legal recognition of their rights to their lands and natural resources. 

On Wednesday 16 November 2016, IIED will host a webinar on strengthening the security of tenure of indigenous and rural communities, particularly focused on communities that employ customary tenure systems.
