Intended to support the use of the Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure of Land, Fisheries and Forests in the Context of National Food Security, this practical guide aims to improve decision-making with regard to forest tenure in four critical areas: understanding, organizing, engaging and ensuring. It starts by highlighting some important opportunities and challenges in governance today and directs readers to further information. It then lays out a toolkit containing some 86 tools described in summary form and 9 key tools explained in some depth. These tools are labelled for their appropriateness in different governance contexts and for the amount of time, money and skills needed to use them. A glossary and extensive web-linked bibliography for further inspiration are also provided. Download the guide [pdf] …
