Land Squeeze

Land is critical to the lives, livelihoods, and food security of millions of people across the world. But a series of unprecedented pressures on global farmland are driving a land squeeze. We are seeing a surge in land inequality, rural poverty, food insecurity, and rural exodus – risking a tipping point for smallholder agriculture.


Join us for this online event to launch the latest IPES-Food report “LAND SQUEEZE” and a dialogue with people giving testimony on their struggles for land on the ground.
