How we work

The Tenure Facility offers grants and technical assistance directly to Indigenous Peoples and local communities in their efforts to secure tenure, with a particular focus on mitigating climate change, reducing conflict and promoting gender equality. Our support enables initiatives that scale up implementation of land and forest tenure reform policies and legislation. We focus on implementing land and forest tenure, by harnessing the power of local community and Indigenous Peoples’ initiatives – using their strategies, skills, and drive.
