Technical Seminar & Knowledge Sharing on CT and FPIC Strengthening the Recognition of Customary Tenure and Free, Prior, and Informed Consent in ASEAN: Status, Challenges, and Opportunities
The technical seminar and knowledge-sharing activity aim to provide a platform for the ASEAN Member States with CSOs and indigenous peoples organizations, and other relevant sectors to discuss and understand the current trends and opportunities on customary forest tenure/customary tenure and FPIC within the ASEAN countries and generate useful inputs into the development of a regional policy framework on customary tenure recognition.
The technical seminar & knowledge-sharing activity will be divided into two main parts: the first part will have more focus on the trends, issues, and opportunities on customary tenure recognition and FPIC at the global, regional, and country-level. On the other hand, the second part will be a discussion of the ASEAN Working Group on social forestry on the draft zero outline of the ASEAN Guideline on Customary tenure recognition in forested landscapes. The result of these activities will be consolidated and synthesized to inform the overall guideline development process.
