Core Values

Rights-based and people-centred

The International Land Coalition upholds the inherent dignity, identity, and social inclusion of all women and men, as captured in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR).

Justice and equity

The International Land Coalition strives to overcome practices that marginalise or dis-empower people. This includes applying the principle of gender justice to all of our work. We recognise the importance of economic justice to address inequality, create opportunity, and overcome poverty and hunger.
