A guide for promotion, implementation, monitoring and evaluation

peoples-manualThe People’s Manual translates the VGGT principles into concrete action at field level. The manual aims to provide a practical approach to people on how to use the Guidelines in their struggles, in order to stop and repair social injustices. It also helps understanding the critical relevance of the Guidelines for the livelihoods of local communities by providing rich examples based on real case scenarios from all around the world.

This People’s Manual has been developed with the technical assistance of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), and with the financial assistance from the European Union (EU), Oxfam and Brazil’s Ministry of Agrarian Development, and the contributions of the organizations participating in and supporting the International Planning Committee for Food Sovereignty (IPC).
