Support for the Implementation of the Voluntary Guidelines on Land Tenure (Component 1)
12/13 - 03/17
This project is part of
The United Kingdom will provide financial support totalling GBP 3 922 159 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) which were globally endorsed by the Committee on World Food Security in May 2012 and whose implementation has been encouraged by the UK. Effective implementation of the Voluntary Guidelines is also the overarching purpose of the new G8 land partnerships negotiated in 2013 under the UK G8 Presidency. Component 1, which focuses on Myanmar, Nepal, and South Africa will focus on delivering country level workshops to raise awareness on the Voluntary Guidelines, increasing the ability of governments and citizens to understand and administer tenure rights and the processes involved in providing access to and transferring such rights, supporting multi-stakeholder national forums and the development of plans for mainstreaming the Voluntary Guidelines in participating countries.
