    Central America and the Caribbean Regional Assessment for the FAO Voluntary Guidelines on Responsible Governance of Tenure of Land and other Natural Resources 2010
    Also available in:

    Concentration of land ownership, lack of access, insecurity of tenure and lack of efficiency and transparency in land administration services, are among the obstacles towards responsible governance of tenure of land and other natural resources in Latin America. These issues have been the subject of discussions and policy recommendations during many international forums, such as the International Conference on Agrarian Reform and Rural Development (ICARRD) held in Porto Alegre, Brazil, in March 2 006. In this regard, FAO, together with other development organizations, is preparing Voluntary Guidelines on Responsible Governance of Tenure of Land and other Natural Resources. The process towards the Voluntary Guidelines is carried out in collaboration with governments, civil society, private sector, and international organizations, and will be adopted by the FAO Member States. The Voluntary Guidelines are intended to provide practical guidance on responsible governance of tenure as a means of responding to global challenges of our time. These guidelines will be consistent with the wide range of international instruments, and will adopt a human rights-based approach. They will be a further elaboration of the Right to Food Guidelines and will be a follow up to the recommendations from ICARRD. The content of the Voluntary Guidelines will draw on multi-stakeholder regional consultation meetings, civil society consultations, private sector consultation and expert group meet ings. Once drafted, the Voluntary Guidelines will be submitted for FAO member countries’ approval. Upon adoption of the Voluntary Guidelines, FAO and its partners will support their implementation through national action plans, through the Organization’s extensive partnership networks and through related project activities.

    In this issue, we present a historical overview from the perspective of our Rural Development Division and colleagues of the Land Tenure Service. We begin with a contribution from Professor Riad El-Ghonemy, the former Chief of the Land Tenure Service and one of the originators of this bulletin back in the 1960s. He expounds his views on the challenges of land reform and on how these have changed over the past forty years. There then follow three articles, submitted in May 2003 to the 29th sessio n of the Committee on World Food Security, on the impact of access to land on improving food security and alleviating poverty. In the first, Professor Michael Carter of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, the United States, deals with the design of land reform and land rights as instruments for alleviating poverty and enhancing food security. In the second article, Professor José-Eli da Veiga of the University of São Paulo, Brazil, recounts his country’s recent experience in land reform, while, in the third, Mr Edgar A. Guardian, Head of the Agrarian Reform Project in the Philippines, relates the experience of this project through which FAO’s Rural Development Division has supported land reform in the Philippines since 1990.

    Land Reform, Land Settlement and Cooperatives continues to play an important role in land tenure and rural development studies and more specifically as part of FAO’s programmes since its first publication in 1963. In the last decade, the issues of good governance, new institutional structures and methodological approaches offering a wider perspective have become important elements of the debate. The articles in this volume of Land Reform, Land Settlement and Cooperatives reflect this i n a variety of ways.
