This project involves the preparation of a background global review and two national assessments of natural resource governance, including land and forest tenure in the sustainable management of coastal mangrove forests.
The aim of the project’s activities is to identify how natural resource governance and tenure conditions can support carbon mitigation, effective disaster risk reduction, and the improvement of equitable livelihoods.
The background global review will survey the existing literature on the role of governance and tenure conditions in driving deforestation and degradation, as well as the sustainable management of forests.
The two assessments will incorporate a gender-differentiated approach and cover Indonesia and Tanzania. They will involve an examination of national policies and legal contexts across relevant ministerial sectors. They will also provide a detailed analysis of mangrove governance and tenure practices in each country.
