The Tenure Facility supports initiatives that:

1. Scale up implementation of land and forest tenure reform policies and legislation by:

  • Providing support to establish legitimate tenure rights in areas where traditional communal rights are not formally recognized
  • Providing support for community mapping, demarcation, and registration efforts
  • Strengthening the capacity of national organizations to provide land tenure related services to reach disadvantaged and vulnerable groups

2. Enable governments and communities to test new models, strategies and approaches.

  • Testing practical solutions to implementation challenges.
  • Assisting governments and communities to overcome administrative obstacles to land rights recognition and titling
  • Building capacity of government agencies responsible for titling and protecting indigenous and community rights
