This project will support indigenous peoples and local communities (IPLC) groups to secure the titles to 1 million hectares of land in the Congo by 2026. The Tenure Facility will provide financial and technical support to IPLC organizations and networks on the ground, enabling them to build partnerships with champions in governments to advance the legal recognition of collective land rights. The Tenure Facility will support projects at subnational, national, and regional levels in the Congo Basin and will select projects based on field appraisals, monitoring, audits, and government approval.
