Land tenure and customary rights

The past decade has seen a wave of reforms in the forestry sectors in Africa, Asia and Latin America that devolve rights and authority from centralized forestry agencies to subnational governments or even to local communities. Many of these reforms have provided greater legal recognition of customary and local authorities, indigenous territorial rights, and women’s rights. But the implementation of these reforms has been uneven and has led to mixed results, in some cases even increasing the tenure insecurity of local communities. This session compares implementation and outcomes of reforms in countries including Indonesia, Uganda and Peru
