- Ensuring effective land use is critical to meeting global food and resource security challenges.
- The UN FAO have released a report which highlights that weak governance has increased the likelihood of corruption in land tenure and administration, and is intensifying the impact of pressures on land use.
- The exploitation of unsecured land is not a new revelation. However, new voluntary guidelines are being drafted to help improve land governance. Such global guidelines may provide a framework through which land owners can help to maximise land use potential and restrict corrupt use.
Governments may wish to consider the implications of the guidelines within the UK, and investigate the impacts of global adoption on improving food security.
