The VGGT - Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure on the Responsible Governance of Tenure of Land, Fisheries and Forests in the Context of National Food Security - are the internationally negotiated framework to improve land governance. Drafted by over 1000 stakeholders with different cultural backgrounds from all regions of the world, the VGGT were negotiated by Member States of the Committee on World Food Security (CFS) and endorsed on 11 May 2012.

Since then, they have eceived significant global and country-level recognition including from the G7, G20, Rio+20, the United Nations General Assembly, the Francophone Assembly of Parliamentarians, the Berlin Agricultural Ministers’ Summit and many more.
