Panelists discuss policy opportunities to advance forest tenure and restoration

On 18 June 2015, the Rights and Resources Initiative (RRI) hosted its 17th Dialogue on Forests, Governance and Climate Change, focused on the theme of “Forest Tenure, Restoration and Green Growth,” in Washington, DC, US, in partnership with International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN). Over 100 participants took part in four separate panel-led discussions, featuring key representatives from governmental, non-governmental and intergovernmental, Indigenous Peoples, and research organizations. In addition, proceedings were made available via live webcast. Participants engaged in panel-led discussions on linkages and opportunities of forest tenure, restoration and green growth, heard about examples from different countries, and were updated on recent developments in international climate policy related to rights and restoration.
