Through its vast network of Partners and Collaborators, RRI’s work in Africa, Asia, and Latin America connects government policymakers, civil society actors, and community leaders to work together to develop new approaches to forest tenure and regulation and share new research and insight.

By engaging these often disparate groups through dialogues and sharing country-level knowledge and research on the implications of tenure and market policies for forest-dependent communities and collaborating with diverse Partners and Collaborators, we ensure the institution of community tenure legislation where none exists and continue to improve implementation of existing, yet unenforced policies.

RRI prioritizes country-level involvement where there is:

  • real political opportunity for substantial reform
  • strong demand from credible local civil-society organizations and governments that are able to engage in and support such reform.
