Strengthening tenure and resource rights for land restoration
Global Land Outlook
This working paper describes the interconnections (the “nexus”) between land tenure and land restoration, and how secure tenure is needed to avoid, reduce or reverse land degradation. It draws on case studies in 12 countries, as well as the wider literature, to show the importance of tenure rights in restoration work. At the core of the suggested approach to restoration are concerns about how to better link tenure, land and ecosystem restoration, and land-governance approaches.
