Open Tenure Trainings with UN-REDD in RDC and Colombia

Participants in the Open Tenure training in Mbandaka (RDC)

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), within the framework of the UN-REDD Programme, recently organized practical training courses on the Open Tenure geospatial tool and its participatory methodology in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and in Colombia. These trainings followed the Training of Trainers (ToT) format, which empowers local trainers with the skills and knowledge to replicate and host training sessions for the community and represent a kick-off of on-the-ground efforts to secure tenure rights for smallholders living in these forest contexts.

In the words of Dauphin Lomboto, a participant in the DRC training, based at the Ministry of Environment, “Open Tenure should be for everyone as it can contribute to our country’s development”.

As it can be adapted to the local context to meet diverse needs and align with existing legal frameworks, in the DRC, civil society participants envision using the tool to demarcate new local community forestry concessions, while in Colombia, the Afro-descendent community partner, COCOMASUR, aims to support land use planning and forest governance, as well as updating the internal census. In both countries users were interested in how Open Tenure can allow a household to register both husband and wife as 50% owners of their land and resources – a first step in addressing discriminatory inheritance practices.

Participants in the trainings learned that the principles and process of using Open Tenure are just as, if not more, important than the hands-on manipulation of the tool itself. Being developed in accordance with the principles of the Voluntary Guidelines on Responsible Governance of Tenure, a transparent, participatory and inclusive process is vital in the identification of stakeholders and rights-holders and throughout the steps of tenure rights recording. Furthermore, a free, prior and informed consent (FPIC) process is considered a prerequisite to engaging at the local level.
