This report analyzes national laws that relate to the forest tenure rights of Indigenous Peoples and communities. It assesses whether the legal systems of 27 of the world’s most forested developing countries recognize the rights of Indigenous Peoples and communities to access, withdraw, manage, exclude, and alienate forest resources and land, the duration of those rights, and their extinguishability (collectively in this report, these are called the “expanded bundle of rights”). The countries included in this study are home to 2.2 billion rural people and contain approximately 75 percent of all forests in developing countries.
