This talk will focus on rights in property ownership, rural land tenures and capabilities of rural communities to participate in landscape restoration. The aim is to bring community voices to the table through data collection, interaction and partnerships. In doing so, we ensure that not only are the local communities educated and informed on restoration efforts, but they will also be part of decision making and feel as part of drivers of change.
The facts and figures that will be presented are a sample of how communities’ knowledge of their rights and access to property rights foster or hinder restoration efforts.
