La tenencia de la tierra y los derechos de propiedad de los bosques son temas críticos para la nueva ola de instrumentos de política, basados en incentivos que tienen por objeto salvaguardar los bienes públicos que se encuentran en los bosques tropicales (como carbono, agua y biodiversidad), al valorar los bienes y los servicios que prestan y al pagar a las personas que los protegen (Bruce et al. 2010).

Forest Trends' Communities Initiative (CI) partners with indigenous and traditional communities in their efforts to secure their rights, conserve their forests and improve their livelihoods and territorial governance. These communities play a key role in the global challenge of fighting climate change and saving the remaining forests from destruction. Deforestation rates in forests guarded by local and traditional communities are 11 times lower than surrounding areas. In the Brazilian Amazon, for example, indigenous communities manage 21.7% of the forests, which represent 27% of the carbon stocks in the region. Over 90% of the world's poorest people depend on forests and other ecosystems to secure their livelihoods and maintain their cultures. We focus in Latin America where 50% of the world's tropical forests remain, with 25% of these forests inhabited and guarded by indigenous and traditional communities. CI provides key information, capacity building and technical assistance so that communities can secure their rights, manage their forests and create economic livelihoods that strengthen their cultures and improve their livelihoods.
