Issues / Forest Tenure

Forest Tenure

Forests and woodlands provide livelihoods for many communities who rely on timber, firewood, building materials, non-wood forest products, fodder, food, medical plants, and water. According to FAO, more than 1.5 million people depend on forests and their products and services which are mostly used informally. Despite the importance of forest tenure reform, it has not received enough attention. Forest tenure and property rights determine who owns and manages forest resources.
