TENURE FACILITY

Indigenous Peoples and local communities live and manage more than half of the world’s land but they have legal ownership of only 10% of their ancestral territories.

These rich biodiverse areas are vital to the people who steward them and the planet we all share. Reducing land conflict, advancing human rights, promoting development and contributing to sustainable climate solutions can all start with strengthening community tenure rights. The Tenure Facility works alongside Indigenous Peoples and local communities to advance their community land rights while sharing the knowledge, innovations and tools that emerge.
