Description

“Land Rights” refers to areas over which indigenous peoples or local communities enjoy rights to the land and certain resources, whether legally recognized or not. The exact nature of these land rights varies among tenure type and country. The land rights data on GFW, while displayed as a single layer, is assembled on a country-by-country basis from multiple sources. Land rights data displayed on the GFW website vary from country to country by date and data sources. Data may come from government agencies, NGOs, or other organizations. See the [Open Data Portal](http://data.globalforestwatch.org/datasets?q=land+rights&sort_by=relevance) for details on specific data sets. If you are aware of land rights data for additional countries, please email us [here](mailto:gfw@wri.org).
