About Inclusive Land Governance

Land governance is a cross-cutting issue that has always been central to much of the work we and our partners do. For that reason, Both ENDS has committed to improve the way we work with our CSO partners and networks on land governance issues and to mobilise more resources for both inclusive land governance ('ILG') initiatives and empowering a wide and diverse network of civil society organisations from Asia, Africa and Latin America united in their ambition for inclusive land governance.
