Organiser(s): Tropenbos International
Session format: Panel
Strengthening the rights of indigenous peoples and local communities to forest land, e.g. through community forestry models, has the potential to contribute to sustainable livelihoods, forest conservation and social justice. Tropenbos International and partners have analysed community forestry models in ten countries, looking at the outcomes, conditions and barriers. In all countries, the internal governance within communities came up as a challenge. CSOs work to support communities in strengthening their internal governance processes, but this brings about questions: What is equitable benefit sharing & who decides this? How do ‘good governance principles’ relate to the traditional governance structures? And what is the role of CSOs in strengthening community governance?
In this session we explore these questions together with partners who conducted the reviews of community forestry & researchers on community governance and benefit sharing.
