In November 2013, 30 pioneering community and civil society experts from across Africa gathered together in South Africa at the first Africa Regional Symposium for Community Land and Natural Resource Protection (see our original blog here) to share experiences and practical strategies in the battle to protect community land and natural resources.
Out of this symposium came a commitment to share these practical experiences, success stories, challenges and resources through the development of a publication by these experts and other community partners, with Natural Justice and Namati.
At a time where threats to community lands and natural resources are peak, "Protecting Community Lands and Resources in Africa: Grassroots Advocates' Strategies and Lessons" is an exciting and innovative collection of case studies written by advocates, for advocates in Africa. Many thanks to Ford Foundation Southern Africa for its support. For a PDF version of the document, please see here
