An open letter to TIAA stakeholders on claims of civil society engagement


It is especially noteworthy to us that TIAA’s illustration depicts the organizations working most closely with local communities, whose members are
most directly impacted by its land acquisitions, as being of least concern for their engagement. Governments should guarantee legitimate tenure rights in line with the Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure (VGGTs) agreed upon by the UN member states in the Committee on World Food Security, and TIAA should not undermine land rights or human rights as defined in the Guidelines.
