Respecting land and forest rights: a guide for companies
This guide has been produced by the Interlaken Group, with steering support from the Rights and Resources Initiative (RRI). The original publication, created in 2015, was designed to support companies aiming to align their operations with the Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure of Land, Fisheries and Forests in the Context of National Food Security (VGGT). It was updated in 2019 to emphasize the gendered impacts of land-based investment. The guide now draws explicit links to international legal frameworks and standards, and provides concrete recommendations for companies to understand and carry out gender-sensitive considerations throughout an investment process.
