Applying responsible land-based investment models in forestry

Global instruments such as the Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure of Land, Fisheries and Forests in the Context of National Food Security (VGGT) and the Principles on Responsible Investment in Agriculture and Food Systems (CFS-RAI) endorsed by the Committee for World Food Security (CFS) provide critical guidance on responsible investments in land and forests to address global challenges of food insecurity, poverty, and inequality while supporting sustainable management of natural resources. Applying these global instruments to the assessment of concrete cases can help to identify better practice models for implementation. This document presents a review of selected better practice land-based investment models and cases in forestry assessing them against the VGGT and the CFS-RAI principles. The brief was developed as a follow on to national dialogues held in Sierra Leone and Lao PDR but may be used in other country contexts.
