Forest Governance

Forests play a pivotal role in the lives of natives and forest dwellers by providing revenue, wealth and subsistence. Nations around the world have introduced several reforms to ensure that decisions involving natural resources are made by people who own, use and manage them. However, the absence of real ownership of land barely offers forest dwellers any rights, thus exacerbating the sufferings of the already marginalized local dwellers.

The Forest Governance multi-project research initiative focuses on upscaling assertion and recognition of tribal forest dwellers’ Community Forest Rights (CFR). Along with that it is also working towards strengthening analytical evidence attesting to the effectiveness of community-driven forest landscape restoration and its linkages with formal or customary rights of forest dwellers.
