Consensus reached on guidelines for land tenure and access to fisheries and forests



Negotiating group sends text to Committee on World Food Security for final approval.

International talks convened at FAO last week to finalize negotiations on a proposed set of voluntary global guidelines on responsible governance of land tenure and access rights to land, fisheries and forest resources have concluded successfully.

The proposed guidelines are now set to be considered for final approval by the Committee on World Food Security (CFS) at a special session in Rome in mid-May.
