ELLA Learning Alliance on Extractive Industries – Module 1: Land Use Planning and Access

Module 1 of the Learning Alliance on Extractive Industries aimed to share knowledge on a range of issues regarding land use planning and access in the context of extractive industries. Participants exchanged their own perspectives and assessed how such knowledge could be adapted to their own regions.

During the five weeks of Module 1, the Moderator, Gerardo Damonte, presented Latin American policy frameworks and practical experiences related to land use planning and access. National Land Use Planning Systems (NLUPS) were reviewed in order for participants to gain knowledge of the general framework of land planning in the region. Assessing the restrictions and conditionalities of these NLUPS formed a key part of the discussions. In the second part of the module, the debate focused on land access issues. Participants deliberated the importance of social licensing in Latin America and its potential for other regions. Issues such as territorial rights and compensation methods were also discussed, based mainly on a review of the Yasuní ITT case study.

This document contains a summary of the issues raised each week by the Moderator and the main conclusions drawn from discussions. Materials shared during the exchange are hyperlinked and relevant contributions are included in text boxes. Finally, conclusions for the whole module are presented.

Conclusiones clave:

  • Latin American land policies for facilitating sustainable extractive developments need to be adjusted to national and regional social contexts in order to be applicable in Africa or Asia.
  • Clear and legitimate land tenure systems in Africa and Asia would help to tackle challenges related to land value, land transaction procedures and compensation methods for extractive resource projects.
  • Latin American experience has shown that greater state and civil society involvement contributes to more effective land use regulation in the context of extractive projects.
  • A participatory and transparent mechanism, such as consultation, is necessary in order to foster consensus building over extractive industry land use.
