CFS, the UN forum for policies concerning food security, included a global thematic event on the Voluntary Guidelines at its 43rd session, held in Rome during 17-21 October 2016.
The event provided an opportunity to share experiences of using the Voluntary Guidelines following their negotiation and endorsement by CFS in 2012.
Good practices identified include ensuring political will and sustained commitment to improve tenure governance, empowering stakeholders and enabling them to develop the capacity to engage in tenure issues and defend their rights, and establishing inclusive multi-stakeholder platforms and linking them to processes to reform policies, laws and systems.
A number of side events expanded on the various aspects of improving tenure governance. A common message was linking improvements of tenure with the Sustainable Development Goals.
