This technical briefing authored by a number of international organizations working on food security, natural resource management and poverty eradication, and endorsed by many local civil society organizations around the world, strongly encourages governments to keep the profile of land and natural resources high in the document on sustainable development goals to be endorsed in September 2015.

Secure and equitable land rights, particularly for those living in poverty and using and managing ecosystems, are an essential element of a post-2015 agenda that has the ambition to be people-centred and planet-sensitive.

This briefing is accompanied by Land Rights Indicators in the Post-2015 SDGs: Recommendations for inter-agency expert group and other policymakers
