Italy is providing financial support over three years for the dissemination and effective and high quality implementation of the Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure of Land, Fisheries and Forests in the Context of National Food Security (Voluntary Guidelines). Component 1 of the project focuses on providing a series of 3 country level workshops in each participating country (Senegal and Niger). The overall objective of the national workshops will be to increase the ability of governments and citizens to understand and administer tenure rights and the processes involved in providing access to and transferring such rights by developing a critical mass of informed stakeholders. The aim of the workshop series (three per country) is to promote the following: a) assist participants to contribute to the improvement and development of the national policy, legal and organizational frameworks regulating the range of tenure rights and to develop concrete plans for implementing the VGGT in their countries; b) create informed communities that are able to contribute to the reform process and monitor progress over time; and c) create learning cadres that will receive further training through e-learning and blended learning planned for the future.
