The knowledge and understanding on VGGT and VGSSF is as tool for advocate the land, fisheries and forest rights of the communities is somewhat at the surface level and need to strengthen collectively although several programs being conducted at the grass root communities. NAFSO’s main aims are to ensure food sovereignty, poverty eradication and ensure employment generation for rural poor would be in danger in the current context of neo liberal economic programs adopted by National Government of Sri Lanka, hence more people should understand what are the available principals, agreements of the government and any legal binding or volunteer principals of UN and other international arena.
