NEW UN-BACKED GUIDELINES AIM TO PROTECT RIGHTS TO LAND, FISHERIES AND FORESTS

A United Nations-backed committee today endorsed a set of far-reaching global guidelines to help governments protect the rights of people, especially the poor, to own or access land, forests and fisheries.

“Giving poor and vulnerable people secure and equitable rights to access land and other natural resources is a key condition in the fight against hunger and poverty,” said the Director-General of the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), José Graziano da Silva.

“It is a historic breakthrough that countries have agreed on these first-ever global land tenure guidelines,” he added. “We now have a shared vision. It’s a starting point that will help improve the often dire situation of the hungry and poor.”

The new Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure of Land, Fisheries and Forests in the Context of National Food Security was adopted by the Committee on World Food Security (CFS) – the leading global platform for discussions on food security issues – in Rome earlier on Friday.

Among the issues dealt with in the guidelines is the so-called ‘land-grabbing’ phenomenon, according to a news release issued by FAO. It recommends that safeguards be put in place to protect tenure rights of local people from risks that could arise from large-scale land acquisitions, and also to protect human rights, livelihoods, food security and the environment.

The guidelines also address a wide range of other issues such as recognition and protection of legitimate tenure rights, even under informal systems; best practices for registration and transfer of tenure rights; making sure that tenure administrative systems are accessible and affordable; managing expropriations and restitution of land to people who were forcibly evicted in the past; and the rights of indigenous communities.

“Some of the issues addressed by the Voluntary Guidelines go back centuries even. The fact that these guidelines tackle those entrenched issues as well as newer concerns is what makes them so significant,” said Mr. Graziano da Silva.

He added that FAO stands ready to provide support and assistance to countries in adapting and implementing the guidelines. The agency will now develop a series of technical handbooks designed to help countries adapt the guidelines to their local contexts and carry them out, as well as provide targeted technical assistance to governments.

The guidelines are based on a consultation process started by FAO in 2009 and then finalized through CFS-led intergovernmental negotiations that included the participation of government officials, civil society organizations, private sector representatives, international organizations and academics."


In other words, you and I CANNOT be "trusted" with OUR land or resources. Get ready folks, Agenda 21 is getting ready to swing into high gear, and you and I are the victims.

  • Personally, I've said, since 1952 - -the un is "worthless", doesn't belong in the USA, get rid of them NOW!  Withdraw every dollar of US support, kick them off US soil, close their embassies and arrest any who linger as "spys"!

  • To HELL with the UN, get rid of O and send him packing with his communist muslim friends in the UN. OFF our soil slim balls.

  •  It will soon come to the point.

  • I'm not happy that the UN is embarking on a mission to destroy the US against the rights of the American people.  I don't think they should have one iota of command in our country, period.  Pull the plug on any activity from them.

  • More bo garbage to set up the downfall of America. He is certifiable insane and the Supreme Court needs to declare him crazy and have him locked up, preferable GITMO with the other terrorists.

  • The UN is funded by the USA by more than 60%.  Our tax money is funding it.  Want to stop it- EVERYONE HAS TO DO THIS TO MAKE IT WORK!!!  STOP PAYING TAXES, STOP FILING TAX RETURNS!!!!!!!!  That will shut them down as well as shutting down Bozo our Communist Dictator!!! 

  • The U.N. needs to be DE-FUNDED & ALL OF THEM DEPORTED!!!! Then we need to make "OUR BUILDING" into a "CHRIST"-TIAN CHURCH!!!! Those COMMIES, TYRANTS & CRIMINALS need to stick to what "THEY DON'T DO BEST"-Which is "FEED THE POOR ONLY"!!! But, they can DO THAT FROM A SOCIALIST or a MUSLIM COUNTRY..."NOT HERE"!!!! DE-FUND & THROW OUT THE U.N.....NOW & PERMANENTLY!!!!

  • I smell a blood bath coming. LEAVE OUR WEAPONS ALONE!!

  • @Keith
    Congress is never going to "man up"! They are the problem!
    They all gotta go. Period.
    And at this point I really don't care how it happens!
    Think about that.
  • The UN has no business telling the United States or its citizens what they ccan or cannot do.  We should be out of the organization and I would have no problem paying any additional tax to move the whole complex to some deserted island in the middle of the ocean.  If they attempt to get close to me or my children/grandchildren, they will regret it every day of their miserable life, which by the way would be very short if they confront me.
