Advocacy efforts led by the Pontifical University Javeriana and the Afro-Caribbean Community Councils have resulted in a collective land title for the Guacoche community to 1,712 hectares of their traditional territory, benefitting 1,806 inhabitants. This unprecedented move came just one week after an RRI-led national event and accompanying analysis highlighted the importance of securing collective tenure rights for Indigenous and Afro-descendant communities in Colombia. To date, 2 million hectares of collective lands have been requested by the Afro-Colombian Community Councils of the Caribbean, yet only 3,000 hectares have been legally recognized and titled.
