    The International Conference on Scaling-Up Strategies to Secure Community Land and Resource Rights will be organized in Interlaken, Switzerland, 19 -20. September 2013. The aim of the Conference is to take stock of current efforts, identify promising strategies, and catalyse new alliances and actions.

    The Interlaken-conference is co-organised RRI, International Land Coalition, Oxfam and IUCN and co-hosted by Helvetas and the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC).

    The conference will provide opportunities for leaders and practitioners to collect, share, and synthesize proven strategies and experiences; identify necessary steps to raise the public profile of community land rights as a global development, environmental and human rights priority issue; and provide a forum for the development of new collaborations and alliances between different actors and interests around community land tenure issues.

    This international conference will bring together a wide diversity of stakeholders — governments, local communities, Indigenous Peoples’ organizations, private investors, food and resource companies, and conservation organizations — that have a direct, common, and urgent interest in clarifying and securing the ownership of these lands and resources. Together, these leaders will share experiences on leading strategies to recognize and secure local communities’ land rights, including mapping and other technical interventions, legal and policy reforms, international standards and accountability, transparency initiatives, and innovative financial mechanisms to support real action and progress. The conference will aim to increase the profile and prioritization of community land rights as a global concern, consolidate ideas and plans to scale-up and more effectively deploy operational strategies, catalyse new collaboration and alliances, and identify next steps to take these strategies forward.
