TRUST ON LAND
STEFAN SVENSON, ESTHER OBAIKOL
Land is one of our ultimate resources for human beings to exist on earth. From that perspective it is necessary that we take care of the land respectfully in a sustainable manner. This said not least in the view of SDGs and Agenda2030, signed by most of the countries in the UN. Many countries have also adopted nice land policies and political intentions to manage land efficient without discrimination on sex, ethnic background, status etc. Coming to practice and implementation, we have seen a huge number of fail and mistakes. Why is it in that way? We believe that one important key is that real actions on land must be built on trust. From these starting points we will discuss the matter on how to build trust, giving examples from a common training programme for 5 countries in eastern Africa.
