From the first moment I arrive in Surabaya, I enter the rollercoaster called ECOTON. I'm visiting them to get to know the work of this long-time Both ENDS partner, and have only three days for this. But ECOTON does a lot, and all of it at the same time. Tirelessly, they work on the protection of the Brantas River.

In 2016, the state forest around the community of Kasepuhan Karang, in Java, Indonesia, was transformed into customary lands. With these newly acquired land tenure rights, the community has started initiatives to use their land in a sustainable and inclusive way. What this means for the community in terms of livelihoods and food security, became clear during a field visit at the start of the Global Land Forum 2018.

It’s hard to imagine that in our modern world communities exist who live in remote, inaccessible areas where their lives are dependent on what nature brings them. However, many of these communities still exist, for example in India. The Durwa-community in India is one of the many indigenous communities that struggles to survive in increasingly challenging conditions. Our colleague Madhu Ramnath describes their day to day struggle in his recent publication ‘Woodsmoke and Leafcups’. The book illustrates how he and his wife were taken in by the Durwa-community. Madhu describes the daily practices of life in the village, their traditions and rituals, their close social ties but also the immense challenges that face the village today.

On 25 and 26 May 2009 the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs hosted a seminar on the interlinkages between human rights and the Millennium Development Goals. For many years, Both ENDS and allied organisations - such as the Freshwater Action Network, the Centrre on Housing Rights and Evictions and Simavi - have been advocating a human rights approach to development. This approach strengthens the rights of civil society in determining how natural resources are managed.
