Strengthening Collective Land Tenure of Indigenous Peoples and Local Communities in FCPF Countries: Country Profiles and Assessment of Opportunities
A prominent outcome of this year’s UN Climate Summit in Scotland (COP26) was the pledge made by more than 100 world leaders to end global deforestation by 2030, which represents a recognition of forests as an essential pillar of our efforts to curb the effects of climate change.
And when we talk about meaningful forest protection, we know that Indigenous Peoples and local communities (IPLCs) are among the most effective groups at conserving and sustainably managing the land and forests that they live in and depend on.
Securing formal recognition and security of customarily held land rights is an important step towards improving the efficacy and inclusivity of emissions reductions projects and achieving global climate and biodiversity goals. A new World Bank report, “Opportunity Assessment to Strengthen Collective Tenure Rights in Forest Carbon Partnership Facility Countries ” identifies pathways for strengthening collective land tenure rights of IPLCs and features detailed Carbon Fund country profiles.
Brought to you by the World Bank Climate Funds Management Unit this webinar will present the findings of the study, including examples of core and country-level findings, cross-sectoral issues, and lessons learned. Experts, Indigenous Leaders, and government representatives will discuss the significance and potential applications of these findings for REDD+ countries, IPLCs, and land, forest rights and social development practitioners.
To access the full report, as well as the country profiles and a report summary (with French and Spanish translations), please visit the event webpage . This webinar is the first in an EnABLE series on Social Inclusion in Climate Finance.
