FAO technical guide on land tenure, combating desertification, land degradation, and drought


Source - United Nations - A new technical guide from the secretariats of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD) addresses the integration of the Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure of land, fisheries, and forests in the context of national food security (VGGT) within the implementation of the UNCCD and Land Degradation Neutrality (LDN).

Designed to be a new chapter in ongoing efforts to combat desertification, land degradation, and drought, the guide outlines the practical applications of the VGGT – an internationally recognized framework on the responsible governance of tenure – in the context of the design and implementation of LDN initiatives. It offers a flexible multi-pathway approach to support policy and decision-makers and relevant stakeholders in shaping a tailor-made response to commonly encountered land tenure challenges via a range of national plans, legal frameworks, strategies, and action programmes addressing land degradation.
