    EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: "In recent years, many governments globally have formally recognized community land and natural resource tenure, either based on existing customary practices or more recently established land governance arrangements.1 These tenure arrangements have been called by a variety of names, such as community, customary, communal, collective, indigenous, ancestral, or native land rights recognition. In essence, they seek to establish the rights of a group to obtain joint tenure security over their community’s land.

    ...the customary rights of communities and
    Indigenous Peoples to forests, rangelands, and wetlands are often not
    written down or shown on government maps, but they are a fundamental
    reality. They cover more than 50 percent of the world’s land surface, yet
    new research by RRI in 2015 showed that just 10 percent of the world’s
    land is legally recognized as community-owned.2
    This means that governments formally recognize communities’
    ownership rights to less than 20 percent of the land they have
    historically owned.
