Climate-change induced disasters and communities’ responses to protect themselves and design solutions have become a top priority on the climate agenda. At the center of mitigation and adaptation discussions have been urban populations, particularly in informal settlements. At the same time, the rural poor with limited or no secure access to land tend to be overlooked. Not only are peasants among the most vulnerable to the impact of floods, droughts, storms, or wildfires. Because of insecure tenure rights in this group, natural disasters often result in land loss and migration as families have little means to reclaim their land or property without records or formal registration documents. Moreover, insecure land rights provide little incentives or capacities to mitigate or adapt to the effects of climate change. People are less likely to plant trees or protect the forest if they fear that their land could be taken at any time. Protecting people’s land rights likely leads to long-term investments in land and may help to combat deforestation.
