A Decade of the CFS VGGT: Assessing progress and enhancing accountability
06 - 07 October 2022
The Committee on World Food Security’s Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure of Land, Fisheries and Forests in the Context of National Food Security (CFS VGGT) – endorsed by CFS in May 2012 – serve as a highly-respected global reference document for practices regarding the governance of tenure. They provide a multilaterally-negotiated framework that countries can use when developing their own strategies, policies, legislation, programmes and activities. The Voluntary Guidelines offer a time-tested technical reference for governments, civil society, the private sector and others to address the complex issues associated with tenure and sustainable development.
As part of the 10th anniversary commemoration of the CFS VGGT, CFS and FAO will jointly organize a high-level event to assess lessons learned over the past ten years and reflect critically on the challenges that were encountered in the implementation of the Voluntary Guidelines. The event will be also an occasion to recognize the progress in responsible governance of tenure and renew efforts towards the achievement of inclusive, equitable and secure tenure rights, fundamental to pave the path for a rural transformation that leaves no one behind.
Interpretation will be available in English, French and Spanish. Register here: https://ifad.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_JgwGWb0zQJyh4JRjaLJxmQ
