GLF session acknowledges difference between tree and land tenure, aims to enhance landscapes

Posted by

Land tenure rights are widely recognized as being central to advancing sustainable development goals, but they are only one part of the picture. As it happens, tenure rights to trees are entangled with, but different from, those to land, meaning both must be acknowledged to incentivize stewardship of the landscape by local communities, said delegates at the Global Landscapes Forum (GLF) in Nairobi.
This was one of the main takeaways from the panel Rights, access, and values: trees in shifting economic and political contexts – new insights from sub-Saharan Africa, co-hosted by two CGIAR research programs: Forests, Trees and Agroforestry (FTA) and Policies, Institutions, and Markets (PIM)s. The panel was chaired by Frank Place, PIM Director.
