Commemorating the 10th Anniversary of the CFS VGGT

A Decade of the CFS VGGT: assessing progress and enhancing accountability

As part of the 10th anniversary commemoration of the CFS Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure of Land, Forests and Fisheries in the Context of National Food Security (VGGT), the FAO Division on Inclusive Rural Transformation and Gender Equality will organize a series of round table technical discussions with the following objectives:  
  1. Critically reflect on obstacles encountered globally on VGGT’s uptake, political and economic challenges, and how to address them.
  2. Reflect on the different pathways to achieve change at scale building on the lessons learnt on VGGT applicability.
  3. Stimulate discussion on the applicability of the VGGT in related fields such as land use, management, and land degradation neutrality; land and water nexus; and climate change mitigation and adaptation strategies.
  4. Reflect of how to improve accountability towards their implementation, including the development of a Global Land Observatory.  
The Land Tenure Team in ESP Division of FAO will convene the event in close collaboration with diverse intergovernmental and civil society partners.
