A total of 140 climate and forestry professionals and experts from 50 countries participated in the UN-REDD webinar “Open Tenure: A mapping tool to enhance REDD+ efforts”. Hosted in English (24 May), French (31 May) and Spanish (24 May), the webinar showcased the basic workings of the Open Tenure tool and took a deeper dive into on-the-ground experiences from Guatemala, Tunisia and Uganda.

Secure tenure rights are recognized as an enabling condition for reducing deforestation and forest degradation. For this reason, FAO’s Open Tenure tool- an open-source application designed to help practitioners record tenure rights in the field- can help countries implement REDD+ strategies, while also benefiting local communities and indigenous peoples.
