Your project is similar, but about the limited resources of land and forestry. I like it.

Legal frameworks for land use and enforcement of these laws are important. In the same breath so is the ground level interaction. The aim of TFD is to be bottom up but I am still not sure if these will be sufficient plans of action. Usually when talking of ‘global action’ care is taken to represent or include stakeholders at the ground level but many times they are left our or misrepresented and these stakeholders such as local communities are the most important. I hope their voice, no matter the country is truly made present and listened to, rather than just being heard.

Land issue is very challenging for food security and sustainability, since its involves many others development issue such water, forest, biodiversity, etc. But, to make this idea effective and worktable, we need to strengthen the institutional and law frameworks of the lands including in Africa. Indeed, the land deals grabbing on going in African countries is a real threat to food security, environment and young people. Africa need to strengthen his legal mechanisms to control or stop this situation.
