Information Brief, 2014.
In light of the endorsement of the Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure of Land, Fisheries and Forests in the Context of National Food Security (VGGT), this Information Brief aims to provide concise and practical elements for a gender-equitable governance of tenure of land, fisheries and forests. Developed jointly with the FAO study The Right to Food and the Responsible Governance of Tenure: A dialogue towards implementation, this Information Brief offers a right to food perspective on a crucial governance matter for the implementation of the VGGT. Besides underlining the importance of some VGGT provisions for the realization of the right to food, Gender-equitable Governance of Tenure of Land, Fisheries and Forests: A Right to Food Perspective presents some of its benefits through lessons learned as well as internationally agreed upon and committed to basis for its implementation.
