ONLINE—We are pleased to share Landesa's 2020 Annual Report. This year's report highlights the role of land rights as a safety net, with stories from around the globe demonstrating how land rights have helped families and communities remain resilient during the pandemic.
The stories shared in this report from Myanmar are part of last year's work. The recent headlining news events have shifted our priorities in that country to the safety and wellbeing of our employees there. All of us at Landesa are hopeful we can continue to support the people of Myanmar in an environment of peace and stability.
Beyond the individuals features in our stories, over 490 million people stand to benefit from better laws and policies designed with input from Landesa last year. Over the past year, we have had important gains in growing our corporate engagement projects, working on youth land rights, and deepening our understanding of the intersection of land rights and climate change.
