WEBINAR Securing tenure rights for forest-dependent communities: a global comparative study

IFAD-CGIAR Good Practice Series on Natural Resource Governance, Planning, and Management

Date: Tue, 9 Mar 2021
Time: 3:00-4:15 Central European Time
Where: On Zoom

The Global Comparative Study on Forest Tenure Reform (GCS-Tenure) is a five-year (2014-2019) research project led by the Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR) in Indonesia, Peru, and Uganda (in-depth studies), with less in-depth comparative studies in Nepal, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Kenya and Colombia. In-depth research aimed to understand important experiences of forest tenure reform implementation, including reforms that have fallen short of securing community rights, as well as women’s rights, and where there are opportunities for multi-stakeholder engagement for innovation and change in policy and practice.

During this webinar, Anne Larson (GCS-Tenure project lead) and Iliana Monterroso (Scientist and coordinator of the Project’s Latin America research) will present key results and findings of the project and focus on three innovations tested and implemented as part of it:

  • Participatory Prospective Analysis (PPA) and multi-stakeholder engagement
  • Innovative approaches to address implementation gaps
  • South-South exchanges for sharing experience across study countries

This webinar series is being supported by IFAD and the Livestock CRP and the Policies, Institutions and Markets (PIM) CRP of the CGIAR. It is part of a regular recurring series where we will "visit" a different country or set of countries where IFAD has been working closely with CGIAR centers through supporting research, development of innovations, partnership, and joint influencing of policy and legislation, to learn about successful outputs, outcomes, and challenges and opportunities

The series offers an opportunity for learning across IFAD, CGIAR centers and partners, to reflect on each country case study and develop steps to strengthen outputs and outcomes, demonstrate the importance of the collaboration and to consider the application of successful interventions elsewhere.
