About this resource:

Community land protection facilitator’s guide, Rachael Knight et al, NAMATI. 2016

This is a step-by-step, practical “how to” manual for grassroots advocates working to help communities protect their customary claims and rights to land and natural resources.

The guide helps communities to build unity and internal capacity for community land protection, to document and map their land claims, to strengthen local governance and seek formal government recognition of their land rights.

The guide is aimed at the directors and staff of local, community-based organizations, national civil society organizations, faith-based organizations, government actors, and other community land protection advocates and activists.

Namati recommends reading the entire Guide at least once before beginning community land protection efforts.
