Indigenous peoples and local communities live in more than half of the world´s land area yet they legally own less than 10% of their territories. Securing their land and forest rights enables them to have the cultural and economic independence to thrive and continue to protect systems vital to our global climate, fresh water, and food security.

It supports them to achieve formal legal recognition of their land and forest rights on maps, in laws, and in the plans and operations of governments and private investors. It works strategically with local, national, and international stakeholders to foster community-level partnership and joint action with governments and the private sector.
