Leading Thoughts: Chris Jochnick, Landesa

This spring the Hilton Prize Coalition is resurfacing the Leading Thoughts series, which reflects upon the work being conducted by Coalition members to build resilience in communities across the world. This clip from 2018 features Chris Jochnick, President & CEO, Landesa. In it, Chris describes appreciating land in a holistic way because land rights go beyond property grabs and conflicts. So many of the world’s poor struggle because of insecure land titles. That’s why Landesa seeks to alleviate the pervasive drag on small-holder farmers.
