The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations leads international efforts to defeat hunger. Serving both developed and developing countries, FAO acts as a neutral forum where all nations meet as equals to negotiate agreements and debate policy. FAO is also a source of knowledge and information. We help developing countries and countries in transition modernize and improve agriculture, forestry and fisheries practices and ensure good nutrition for all. Since our founding in 1945, we have focused special attention on developing rural areas, home to 70 percent of the world's poor and hungry people.

En nuestra región, el 80% de las explotaciones pertenecen a la agricultura familiar, incluyendo a más de 60 millones de personas, convirtiéndose en la principal fuente de empleo agrícola y rural.

It moves away from long-standing debates about gender equality in access to land, towards the mainstreaming of gender issues to achieve more gender-equitable participation in the processes and institutions that underlie all decision-making about land.

This publication provides a summary of the current situation of forest tenure globally, drawing primarily on the forest tenure assessments carried out by FAO in rent years and informed by several other sources. Based partly on the documents produced by the forest tenure assessment and partly on experiences described in the wider literature, the publication then reviews specific experiences of forest tenure and tenure reform, drawing lessons about what has worked and why, and identifying potential risks associated with particular approaches.
