Forest land designated by governments for Indigenous Peoples and local communities: Ownership of forest land under this category remains claimed by the state but some rights have been recognized by governments on a conditional basis for Indigenous Peoples and local communities. While rights-holders have some level of “control” exercised through management and/or exclusion rights over forests, they lack the full legal means to ensure the security of their claims to forests (i.e. having all three rights to exclude, to due process and compensation, and to retain rights for an unlimited duration). Data are in million ha. See more at: http://rightsandresources.org/en/resources/tenure-data/the-four-categori...
