This publication provides a summary of the current situation of forest tenure globally, drawing primarily on the forest tenure assessments carried out by FAO in rent years and informed by several other sources. Based partly on the documents produced by the forest tenure assessment and partly on experiences described in the wider literature, the publication then reviews specific experiences of forest tenure and tenure reform, drawing lessons about what has worked and why, and identifying potential risks associated with particular approaches. This analysis is used to identify key issues that are relevant in undertaking tenure reform.
The publication was launched in Lombok, Indonesia, in July 2011 on the occasion of the International Conference on Forest Tenure, Governance and Enterprise: Experience and Opportunities in Asia in a Changing Context, which was jointly organized by the Government of Indonesia, ITTO and RRI.
