    This study is aimed at gaining an understanding of the poverty and vulnerability situation of forest-dependent communities in the United Republic of Tanzania and generating information on the availability of social protection interventions, with a view to identifying pathways for establishing sustainable social protection for these communities. Social protection is taken to include “all initiatives, both formal and informal, that provide social assistance to extremely poor individuals and households; social services to groups who need special care or would otherwise be denied access to basic services; social insurance to protect people against the risks and consequences of livelihood shocks; and social equity to protect people against social risks such as discrimination and abuse” (Devereux and Sabates-Wheeler, 2008).

    Guyana: Empowering indigenous forest-dependent communities to manage and monitor forest resources
    FAO-EU FLEGT Programme: Success story

    The FAO-EU FLEGT Programme has supported the Amerindian Peoples Association to design and implement Free, Prior, Informed Consent protocols as part of the Programme’s broader objective to ensure participation of forest communities in national forest governance dialogue. Empowering indigenous and forest-dependent communities to play an active role in national forest governance dialogues capitalizes on their unique knowledge of forest resources. The project saw the successful piloting of the protocols in the village of Bethany, where community members were equipped with the skills and knowledge to negotiate with extractive resource companies and monitor their activity on customary land. The project offers a potential new pathway to regulating the use of resources within customary land in Guyana.
