Informed Rights Augment Landscape Restoration and Ease Tracking Progress Towards Climate Protection

New York

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.

Host: Betty J. Rono

Organizations are welcome and encourage to host and facilitate side meeting before and during the GLF event, and then bring their results and recommendations to the Forum. A GLF secretariat will be on hand to identify and reserve appropriate Bonn venues. Webinars, engaging social media campaigns, competitions and pre-event discussions will generate momentum and interest in key issue areas to ensure that the GLF accelerates long-term action for sustainable landscapes.

The GLF will have a small secretariat in Bonn, Germany to coordinate all of the above, operated by CIFOR.
