Session format: Panel.
In Scotland, two decades of land reform has led to a shift from a pattern of predominantly private rural landownership, to one where community bodies have become landowners. Communities have become empowered through the transfer of land and other property from public bodies and community land ownership can support multiple factors of community resilience.
This session explores examples of international community land ownership and collates the experiences of community land governance during the pandemic. How does community land and asset ownership support adaptation to crises? What are the factors of resilience that community land ownership facilitates & how could that be further promoted? What options are there for policies to support greater community land governance in different international contexts, and what barriers remain?
