Présentation

This study is the result of a partnership between Entraide & Fraternité, 11.11.11 and the Centre tricontinental. It is the second in a series devoted to land access (the first
study focused on Madagascar).

It is based on a survey conducted from July to August 2019 on Mindanao island, in the south of the Philippines – the country’s second largest island in terms of surface area and population.
Mindanao is considered the “food basket” of the Philippines, concentrating most of the country’s agricultural products for export (bananas, pineapples, rubber...), and some of its most strategic resources (such as gold reserves).
Yet, the island is also a hotspot for certain significant socio-economic and political problems, including conflicts over land access.
Three conflict situations involving farmers, fishers and indigenous communities are analysed in this study.

  • Agrarian reform and farming conflicts in the Province of Lanao del Norte
  • Coastal areas and access to land for small-scale fishers in Lanao del Norte
  • Indigenous communities and multiple pressures on the land in North Cotabato
