    The security that the world’s forest-dwelling people have over their collective lands and resources are of increasing importance in the face of global challenges such as climate change, loss of biodiversity and land degradation. As areas occupied by Indigenous Peoples and local communities (IPLC) are increasingly threatened, the need to clarify rights becomes more urgent. Yet, progress is incomplete and held back by a lack of knowledge of where and how IPLCs occupy land. Building on the success of the LandMark initiative to map known IPLC land rights, and Prindex, a joint initiative of Global Land Alliance and ODI to measure perceived tenure security, the next major effort is the development of a global participatory IPLC map and database platform – “map base” – with the transformative potential to map all IPLC rights to land and resources globally. This document details the prospective development of the map base platform and methodology for measuring tenure security. Key advances include the platform’s scalability, focus on community participation, predictive approaches to identifying lands likely under IPLC occupation, and the incorporation of spatially-referenced perceived tenure security data. The result will be a unique and robust platform that will fill key knowledge gaps in the urgent discussions around effective approaches to protecting forest areas and supporting the people who actively manage and depend on these ecosystems.

    Lake Malawi is the ninth largest and third deepest freshwater lake on Earth. It also is home to a diversity of fish species, than any other lake. 21 % of Malawi’s surface area is covered by water and hence fisheries play an important role for the Malawian population in terms of employment, income generation and food security
