This thematic issue on land tenure and disaster risk management (DRM) stems from the recent work done at FAO on normative aspects of land tenure governance that address natural disasters through the DRM framework. The Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure of Land, Fisheries and Forests in the Context of National Food Security provide, among other issues, guidance on improving tenure governance and strengthening tenure security of vulnerable people in line with the DRM framework.

FAO data show that the decrease is due to a decline in deforestation rates globally. They also reveal that emissions from forest degradation, estimated for the first time, are increasing over time and represent one-quarter of total emissions.
