Much progress has been made on improving governance of tenure and the VGGT have contributed towards this.
For billions of people who depend on land and natural resources for food and livelihoods, land tenure governance is essential. But with the increasing impacts of climate change and other natural resource degradation, it is becoming clearer that how these resources are governed affects all of us.
The VGGT+10 Progress Report: Examining governance of tenure across 12 countries is based on a review of the situation of the governance of tenure in 12 countries that was carried out during 2022 using the VGGT as a guide and benchmark. The study was organized as part of the VGGT+10 Initiative of Welthungerhilfe, Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), International Land Coalition (ILC), and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO).
This came ten years after the adoption of the VGGT by the World Committee on Food Security.
The report focuses on the progress made across 12 countries, including good practices, as well as the challenges encountered, lessons learnt, and the main tenure issues to still be addressed going forward.
