Discussion

Protecting land, protecting food – Indigenous and local women as stewards of land and food sovereignty

Advocating for land tenure rights, biodiversity protection and food sovereignty.

Insecure land and resource tenure and loss of access to land threatens food security, food sovereignty and biodiversity. While Indigenous and local women are the stewards of land and biodiversity they are also paying the highest costs of climate change and biodiversity loss, and  their tenure rights are highly fragile. With strong tenure rights, gender-responsive governance and adequate financial resources indigenous and local women will continue to be champions of change for food sovereignty, health, nutrition, and biodiversity. 
This session will bring together women from different regions discussing their work and personal experience relating to and advocating for land tenure rights, biodiversity protection, restoration and sustainable use as well as food sovereignty.
