Regional

Organisation website:
Al-Haq is an independent Palestinian non-governmental human rights organisation based in Ramallah, West Bank. Established in 1979 to protect and promote human rights and the rule of law in the Occupied Palestinian Territory (OPT), the organisation has special consultative status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council.

Al-Haq documents violations of the individual and collective rights of Palestinians in the OPT, irrespective of the identity of the perpetrator, and seeks to end such breaches by way of advocacy before national and international mechanisms and by holding the violators accountable. The organisation conducts research; prepares reports, studies and interventions on breaches of international human rights and humanitarian law in the OPT; and undertakes advocacy before local, regional and international bodies. Al-Haq also cooperates with Palestinian civil society organisations and governmental institutions in order to ensure that international human rights standards are reflected in Palestinian law and policies. The organisation has a specialised international law library for the use of its staff and the local community.

Organisation website:
Landesa works to secure land rights for the world's poorest people. In brief "We recognize that a majority of the world's poorest 2.5 billion share two traits:

They live in rural areas, where land is a key asset since agriculture is the main source of income and food
They don't own the land they till

Landlessness is one of the best predictors of extreme poverty.

We believe structural problems deserve structural solutions. Without secure land rights, many important global development investments – education initiatives, micro-finance, global health work – lack sustainability and are more difficult to scale.

Landesa partners with developing countries to design and implement pro-poor land laws, policies, and programs that:

Reduce poverty for individual families
Promote economic growth for communities and countries
Improve nutrition and health
Encourage women's empowerment
Reduce and prevent violent conflict
Foster environmental stewardship."
