We believe in the inherent dignity of all people. But around the world, too many people are excluded from the political, economic, and social institutions that shape their lives. 

The Tenure Facility

The International Land and Forest Tenure Facility is focused on securing land and forest rights for Indigenous Peoples and local communities. We are the first financial mechanism to exclusively fund projects working towards this goal while reducing conflict, driving development, improving global human rights, and mitigating the impacts of climate change.

During the pandemic, the Land Portal Foundation, The Ford Foundation, the Thomson Reuters Foundation and the Tenure Facility launched what is now our  longest-standing webinar series, the Land Dialogues webinar series. Through the multiple virtual discussions that are organized every year, the Land Dialogues promote the centrality of Indigenous and community land rights in advancing global efforts to halt the climate crisis, achieving a healthy planet and forwarding the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.  It focuses on the importance of formally recognising and securing the customary lands of Indigenous Peoples and local communities as a crucial contribution to the overall climate health of the planet. 

Today, the Land Dialogues webinar series, organized with our colleagues at the Tenure Facility,  receives an average of 980 registrations and 330 live participants per webinar and is available in English,  Spanish, Portuguese and French.  Because understanding and knowledge don’t come after one webinar or one article, we return to topics, inviting familiar and new voices to participate in order to create and sustain a comunity of practice  and interest around key topics of interest.  We provide previews leading to COP but also follow-up to refine our understanding of what actually took place. Through this we have engaged in deepened collaborations with a variety of like-minded organizations from global to local, like the Global Alliance of Territorial Communities, the Forest Peoples Programme, the AMPB Mesoamerica and AMAN in Indonesia.  

Our next Land Dialogue will delve into the important role that Indigenous and local community women play in preserving biodiversity and nature.  We hope to see you there!
