The RRI Coalition, guided by a number of community organizations and Indigenous Peoples’ representatives, comprises a wide spectrum of organizations, including community and Indigenous Peoples’ organizations, research institutions, development assistance organizations, and local and international advocacy and human rights groups. We analyze and report on global trends in forest tenure and land rights, and catalyze coordination between important constituencies at all levels—including local civil society, private investors, governments, and other influential change agents.

It is our belief that when all key stakeholders with an interest in land and resources come together, greater cooperation, understanding, and respect lead to demonstrable progress on the recognition of rights of the local peoples who live and depend on these lands.
