A common vision: the 10-65 challenge

May 12, 2016

This Pecha Kucha style presentation was given by Michael Taylor, Director of the International Land Coalition, at the 2015 Global Landscapes Forum in Paris in December 2015. The Forum is the biggest event related to the CGIAR Research Program on Forests, Trees and 2015 Global Landscapes Forum

This presentation consider the urgency of closing the gap between the 65% of land claimed by local communities and Indigenous Peoples, and the 10% that governments actually recognize as belonging to local communities. It considers the lose-lose scenarios that can easily arise when such rights are ignored, and the win-win possibilities for local communities when their land rights are recognised.
