New RRI publication compare national legislations on community and indigenous peoples forest tenure rights.

The global coalition Rights and Resources Initiative (RRI) has published a report based on an analysis of forest tenure rights in 27 of the most forested development countries in the world. 
 
Title:
What Rights? - A Comparative Analysis of Developing Countries’ National Legislation on Community and Indigenous Peoples’ Forest Tenure Rights 
 
Abstract: 
This report presents a legal analysis of the national legislation that relates to Indigenous Peoples' and communities' forest tenure rights at a global scale by assessing whether the legal systems of 27 of the most forested developing countries of the world recognize the rights of Indigenous Peoples and communities to access, withdraw, manage, exclude and alienate to forest resources and land. The countries included in this study are home to 2.2 billion rural people and include approximately 75% of the forests in the developing world.
