    This report explores how forest and farm producer organisations (FFPOs) can best nurture youth and address youth migration. Youth (15-24 years of age) bring energy and innovation to forest and farm production systems. Of a total global youth population of 1.2 billion, 85% live in developing countries where they make up the mainstay of the rural workforce. Yet, 75% of youth are currently classified as underutilised (unemployed; in irregular or informal jobs; or outside of formal education and training).

    Summary: "This paper presents an overview of the distinctive
    features of communal tenure in
    different community-based land and natural resource
    management systems. Communal
    tenure refers to situations where groups, communities, or one or more villages have

    resources such as land, forest and water. These are
    often referred to as
    common pool
    resources: many rural communities are dependent on these resources for their

    ...The main purpose of this paper is to examine legal measures taken to recognize
    indigenous groups and provide for their ongoing operation; the paper starts, therefore, from an
    underlying assumption that indigenous groups have continued relevance to the needs and wishes
    of the people who operate within them. Nevertheless, while it is beyond the scope and purpose of

    – some of the arguments made for and against the preservation of indigenous groups. In the
