During this session, we learned how land degradation neutrality relates to land tenure security and why tenure security is important to combat the further degradation of land. We learned how land tenure security is embedded in a wider spectrum of human rights and what is needed to secure these multiple rights for those living on and from the land. We learned from local, regional and global actors, what instruments they use to align legal frameworks with local realities, and what it takes to bridge formal legislation with informal realities on the ground. Finally, we discussed the pros and cons of multi-stakeholder dialogue, which is increasingly seen as an instrument to bridge the two and help strengthen land tenure security for all.
