2022 was a year of diligent preparation and profound growth for the Tenure Facility. It saw us reaffirm our existing partnerships and establish new ones with some of the foremost Indigenous-led organisations in five additional countries.
At the end of the year, we expanded our global presence from 12 to 17 countries across Africa, Asia and Latin America as well as doubled the number of projects in implementation by our partners from nine to 17. In total, 10 million hectares of Indigenous and community forests now have more secure land rights, a benefit to more than 6,500 communities.
This annual report highlights that significant expansion and delves into the hard work both we and our partners put in to make it happen. We invite you to take a look back at our collective achievements from last year as well as read about some of the many pivotal changes and accomplishments still to come.
