Just transformations – Tenure rights as the basis for restoring land and biodiversity while protecting people and livelihoods
Our contribution to CBD COP 15
Secure tenure rights are a precondition for protecting and restoring land, soils, biodiversity and many mitigation and adaptation measures. Land tenure security also has significant positive effects on the resilience of local communities.
This session will highlight the cross-cutting importance of legitimate land tenure rights for the Rio Conventions, by learning from the UNCCD land tenure decision (26/COP.14) and the lessons that can be drawn for the UNCBD. It will unite key stakeholders from local, national, and global level to explore possible implications of the implementation of the UNCCD land tenure decisions for the implementation of the Global Biodiversity Framework. They will share their expertise, lessons learned and good practices from different contexts and various levels of governance for an effective implementation of the Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework.
