A national workshop on the Voluntary Guidelines was held in Libreville during 14-16 January to help to strengthen the national dialogue on the most pressing tenure challenges and opportunities in Gabon and the use of the Voluntary Guidelines in light of ongoing reforms. The participants agreed to create a multi-sectoral committee to continue striving for improved governance of tenure and to formulate a cross-sectoral strategy for implementing the Voluntary Guidelines in Gabon at all levels. The workshop was co-organized by the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock, Fisheries and Food Security, the General Secretariat of the Government of Gabon and FAO. It brought together 75 representatives from the national tenure administration, farmers' organizations, civil society, international organizations, the private sector, NGOs and academia.
