This installment of the NYDF Assessment briefing series "Goal 10: A Closer Look" examines progress made on recognizing and securing community lands across 14 countries.
In 2018, the NYDF Assessment Partners published the NYDF Goal 10 Assessment Report, Improving Governance to Protect Forests: Empowering People and Communities, Strengthening Laws and Institutions. This three-part briefing series, "Goal 10: A Closer Look," was released in June 2019. It takes a more detailed look at key findings from the assessment to highlight and present additional research on progress towards Goal 10.
The series features research from Chatham House and Climate Focus, the International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED), and the LandMark initiative (coordinated by the World Resources Institute). The briefs highlight progress in empowering and securing forest rights for forest-dependent communities, and improving transparency, accountability, and the rule of law across key forest countries.
This brief, Held, Legally Recognized, Documented, and Not-Recognized Community Land: Findings from 14 Countries, was produced by the NYDF Assessment Partners in collaboration with LandMark.
