This project contributes to the governance of forest resources by supporting collective land tenure, land tenure security and landscape governance institutions. The project specifically contributes to PIM Flagship 5 on Governance of Natural Resources. The expected FP5 2022 outcomes are: (1) evidence that informs natural resource governance and tenure policy processes and implementation; (2) improved tenure security; and (3) improved landscape governance. All activities are country specific, except for the critical research component, which is global. Two of the country-specific activities (testing methods and gender), however, have methods and tools as products that are intended for global use.
The objectives, approaches and partnerships vary by activity. Activities under this project are:
- Emerging Challenges and Agricultural Investment Options for Improved Income, Food Security and Environment
