World Forum on Access to Land

March 31st-April 2nd (Valencia, Spain)

We have set a date for the global assembly: discussions will take place between March 31st and April 2nd, 2016, on the campus of the Polytechnic University of Valencia, Spain.

The WFAL global assembly will unite as many representatives as possible from the three major categories of signatories. There will be a large number of farmers’ organizations as well as urban and rural civil society organizations (in particular, organizations that are focused on gender and on youth). The forum is of course open to any and all organizations or individuals interested in participating, as long as they respect the WFAL’s mission and the discussion rules laid out by International Organizing Committee.

Forum organizers are working hard to obtain funding for travel, room, and board for as many participants as possible. We are also counting on the support of participating organizations and institutions that are in a position to cover transportation costs for their representatives.

We will provide more information about forum participation as soon as we have a final budget. If you are able to cover your own travel, room, and board, please let us know.

The “regional discussion phase” in preparation for the WFAL global assembly has officially begun.  We invite you to send documents (written, audio, video) concerning your region.

More information and the proposed discussion topics will arrive in a second Newsletter.
