Global Land Alliance | Community Participation and Inclusion during a Pandemic: Recent Experiences from Around the World

In this recently published blog, Laura Bermudez, Jordan Oestreicher, Christen Corcoran, Elyse Magen address the questions: How can we reconcile the hazards of social interaction in a COVID-19 world with the importance of community participation to the successful, and sustainable, implementation of on-going land projects?

With strict health standards in place, COVID-19 has significantly impeded the way land tenure projects are operating in the field. Many of the participatory aspects of land tenure projects have had to be either postponed or adjusted in order to reduce the risk of transmitting the virus. This has the potential to obstruct successful and sustainable implementation for projects seeking to formalize and secure land tenure, where community participation is of the upmost importance.

This blog provides examples of community engagement during COVID-19 in Mozambique, Ethiopia, Ecuador, Dominican Republic and Colombia.
