10th Anniversary of VGGT | Land Portal

10 years ago today, on 11 May 2012, the Committee on World Food Security (CFS) endorsed its Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure of Land, Fisheries and Forests in the Context of National Food Security – the CFS VGGT. 

The CFS VGGT promote legitimate land tenure rights particularly those of the most marginalized and vulnerable. The Guidelines provide a framework that countries can use when developing their own strategies, policies and legislations. 

Joint CFS/FAO High Level Event

As part of the 10th anniversary commemoration of the CFS VGGT, CFS and FAO’s land tenure unit will jointly organize a high-level event to assess lessons learned over the past ten years; remind policy makers and stakeholders of the potential these guidelines hold; and to re-confirm political, policy and financial commitments to accelerate their further implementation.

The event will be organized in a hybrid format, with high level speakers and participants (approximately 50 people) attending in-person in the Green Room at FAO HQ in Rome and other participants joining virtually via Zoom webinar, and webcast. Simulteneuous interpretation will be available in 6 UN languages: English, French, Spanish, Chinese, Russian, Arabic.
