Each year, the RRI Coalition responds strategically to priorities identified by local communities, complementing and adding value to existing initiatives and ensuring that community organizations and Indigenous Peoples’ representatives play major roles in guidance and governance.

The collective fingerprint of RRI’s Partners, Affiliated Networks and Collaborators is reflected in major tenure reforms in Brazil, China, and Indonesia; stronger tenure advocacy in South Asia, Central America, and West and Central Africa; greater global awareness of tenure in all things REDD; enhanced corporate responsibility standards and policy; and in women’s natural resource rights mobilization in Central and West Africa. The RRI family of institutions is mindful of the tremendous amount of work that is still to be done for the world’s forests, and the people and communities that call them home.
