    Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure of Land, Fisheries and Forests in the Context of National Food Security 2012
    The guidelines are the first comprehensive, global instrument on tenure and its administration to be prepared through intergovernmental negotiations. The guidelines set out principles and internationally accepted standards of responsible practices for the use and control of land, fisheries and forests. They provide guidance for improving the policy, legal and organizational frameworks that regulate tenure rights; for enhancing the transparency and administration of tenure systems; and for strengthening the capacities and operations of public bodies, private sector enterprises, civil society organizations and people concerned with tenure and its governance. The guidelines place the governance of tenure within the context of national food security, and are intended to contribute to the progressive realization of the right to adequate food, poverty eradication, environmental protection and sustainable social and economic development.

    Enabling legal environment for the responsible governance of tenure of land, fisheries and forestry
    Legal brief for parliamentarians in Latin America and the Caribbean No. 4

    Also available in:

    The responsible governance of tenure, based on principles of human rights, allows for fair access to land, fishing and forests. It also protects people against arbitrary loss of their rights, including evictions. It prevents discriminatory practices and results in transparent and participatory decision-making processes. It also guarantees equality before the law and can prevent disputes, thanks to its mechanisms of conflict resolution. Ultimately, it promotes food security by guaranteeing access to natural resources and protecting the rights of the people who depend on them. This document contains the keys to make governance fairer, based on principles established by Human Rights. This document will address: i) an analysis of the international and regional framework established by the legal bases in Latin America and the Caribbean; ii) the measures recommended to the States to face this challenge; iii) the need to include the gender issue in resource tenure; and iv) the necessary parliamentary actions to promote legislation in their favour.

    The recognition of customary tenure systems and responsible land-based investments that safeguard legitimate tenure rights and right holders are the interconnected main themes for mainstreaming the Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure of Land, Fisheries and Forests in the Context of National Food Security (VGGT) in Cambodia, Lao People’s Democratic Republic, Myanmar and Viet Nam. This study aims at providing an assessment of the legal frameworks in the four countries to analyse whether safeguards for legitimate tenure rights and tenure right holders can be identified in legal provisions applicable to decisions related to land-based investments in agriculture. The assessment also aims at informing and supporting ongoing processes of policy and legal reform in the four countries, as well as the work of organizations that provide support to these processes.
