Empowerment of Forest-Linked Communities: What Progress and Where Next?

James Mayers, Duncan Macqueen

Briefing, 9 pages

The New York Declaration on Forests (NYDF) is an international pledge to halt global deforestation. It sets out ten ambitious goals related to protecting and restoring forests. In 2018, the NYDF assessment partners released a report on Progress on the NYDF for Goal 10, which calls for the strengthening of forest governance. This brief presents the main conclusions of an assessment of progress made on empowerment of forest-linked community organizations and draws out some of the factors that underlie successful empowerment. Our identification of these success factors is primarily based on an analysis of the experience of five years of direct support to 947 forest and farm organizations from the Forest and Farm Facility (FFF), a partnership and multi-donor funding facility comanaged by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN), and the International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED).
