comparative analysis ICARRD Final Declaration and Zero Draft VG

The VG exercise has been presented as a continuum from the ICARRD Conference and commitments by Member States; therefore there is scope for a comparative analysis of the two texts.

A detailed comparative analysis reveals that many aspects highlighted in ICARRD Final Declaration have been treated in the same spirit by the VG. In this sense it makes sense to consider VG as a continuation of the efforts of ICARRD. It is also noted that the VG focus on governance of tenure and as such have a different (more limited) scope from the ICARRD FD (that was pointing to both the access dimension as well as to the “development” – rural/territorial).

However, the analysis gives rise to some recommendations for stronger alignment of the present (zero) draft of the VGs with some positions taken by the Member States in the ICARRD FD. The following link intends to provide examples of that.
