This list of countries is where an Land Governance Assessment Framework (LGAF) has been COMPLETED.
The LGAF is a diagnostic tool that is implemented at the local level in a collaborative fashion, that addresses the need for guidance to diagnose and benchmark land governance, and that is intended to help countries prioritize reforms and monitor progress over time.
VGGT based forest tenure and CBF assessments conducted in each of the countries. In Gabon and Congo Brazzaville the assessments will inform Ministry of Forests on status and challenges of CBF, and recommendations for improvement. In Honduras and Senegal, the assessments will be used to inform on-going forestry programs and design of new projects.
A global programme that benefits poor forest-dependent people by supporting governance and market reforms aimed at reducing the illegal use of forest resources and promoting sustainable growth in developing countries. One of its main intended outcomes is to supports adopting and implementing pro-poor land tenure reforms at national level
The project aims to provide the population in the project Area with improved, decentralized land administration services, including better access to and more accurate information on property records and transactions.
A VGGT based forest tenure assessment framework/tool was developed and tested to evaluate the forest tenure related policies, laws, institutions, and administration in order to identify areas for improvement with respect to the VGGT principles, as well as identify and prioritize actions for strengthening governance of forest tenure in country.
A Community based forestry assessment framework/tool was developed and tested to evaluate the extent, enabling environment including tenure, and effectiveness in order to identify areas for improvement. The framework provides for assessment of a range of tenure regimes providing for participatory forestry in country.
Central America is the tropical region most severely affected by climate change worldwide. Soil degradation, forest loss and monocultures make it even more vulnerable to climate change. Regional efforts to harmonise climate protection activities and biodiversity goals have so far been unsuccessful.
CI (Conservation International) and CATIE (Centro Agronómico Tropical de Investigación y Enseñanza, Costa Rica) propose to assess vulnerability to climate change in ecosystems whose resources support smallholder farming communities in Central America and to develop and test strategies for Ecosystem-based Adaptation (EbA) to help highly vulnerable farming communities cope with climate change.
