Acknowledging the centrality of land issues to end hunger and achieve sustainable development, countries have agreed to meet ambitious land targets by 2030. Five years into the SDGs, persistent land insecurity, land evictions, threats to land rights defenders and other challenges show that the land promises are not being delivered.
These challenges are now compounded with Covid-19 where economic downturns and job losses or insecurity across the world are creating havoc even among those who used to count on reliable and sufficient income. A strong pattern of reversed migration takes place, while government resources are thinly stretched.
In this webinar we invite you to discuss with us where we stand and jointly find strategies to meet the land-related SDG targets, namely: 1.4, 2.3, 5.a and 15.3.
This virtual side event is proposed as part of the 2020 SDG High Level Political Forum to be held from 7th to 16th July 2020. It is organized by the SDG Land Momentum Group, an informal group of CSOs and multilateral organizations working to promote the role of secure and equitable tenure rights in meeting the 2030 sustainable Development Agenda.
