The 2018 Dutch government policy note ‘Investing in Global Prospects ’ makes it clear that if you do not solve land issues, you cannot achieve most of the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations (SDGs). Therefore, a sustained and comprehensive effort into inclusive land governance and sustainable land use is a key priority to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. In this, both formal and informal land rights are acknowledged as is the dependence of vulnerable groups on access and control over land and its resources.
This ambition clearly builds further on a long and solid track record of the Dutch government and many other stakeholders in strengthening just, inclusive and sustainable land governance.
