RRI - Forest Tenure Data

The quantitative dataset on forest tenure data by RRI currently covers 52 countries containing nearly 90% of the world’s forests. It monitors spatial forest tenure data - that is, who owns how many hectares of a given forest. RRI recognizes four categories of land ownership:

I) Forestland Owned by Indigenous Peoples and local communities
II) Forestland Designated for Indigenous Peoples and local communities
III) Forestland Administered by governments
IV) Forestland by individuals and private firms
