    Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure of Land, Fisheries and Forests in the Context of National Food Security (arabic version)
    governance of tenure, making it happen
    2012
    Land, fisheries, forests and other natural resources provide a platform for livelihoods and a basis for social, cultural and religious practices. Pressure on these resources is increasing as areas are sought for cultivation, are occupied by urban expansion and as people abandon areas because of degradation, climate change and conflicts. In response, FAO and its partners initiated the preparation of internationally accepted guidelines to enhance governance of tenure of land, fisheries and f orests. The Guidelines promote secure tenure rights and equitable access to land, fisheries and forests as a means of eradicating hunger and poverty, supporting sustainable development and enhancing the environment. They were officially endorsed by the Committee on World Food Security on 11 May 2012.
