The objective is to discuss the potential of the UNCCD COP14/26 decision on land tenure to achieve land degradation neutrality and soil restoration in the national context. The Ministry of Environment and Forestry (Kenya), the Ministry of Natural Resources and Energy (Malawi), the Ministry of Planning and Development (Benin), Ministre de l’Environnement et du Développement Durable (Madagascar), and TMG Research will co-host the discussion on the urgency of addressing land tenure issues more prominently in the design and implementation of activities to restore soils and to achieving land degradation neutrality. Country studies will highlight the link between land tenure and how tenure ultimately affects the achievement of restoration goals. The studies are part of an ongoing cooperation between TMG Research and partner organisations in the four countries funded by the German Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development to support the implementation of the UNCCD COP14/26 decision. The co-hosts of this session will jointly emphasize that secure tenure rights are key to achieving just transitions towards land degradation neutrality and soil rehabilitation.
