“Hands on the Land” addressed the challenges of small scale food producers, their families and communities: limited, threatened and sometimes destroyed access and control over land, water, seeds and other natural resources. It launched a collective campaign, involving 16 partners: peasant and social movements, development and environmental NGOs, human rights organisations and research activists. It raised awareness on the use and governance of land, water and other natural resources and its impacts on food sovereignty. “Hands on the Land” produced evidence-based research and material. Its advocacy and education work included public events, meetings and trainings.
