Details- The Tenure Facility (TF) project is a multi-objective initiative that aims at upscaling Community Tenure and Jurisdiction for tribal and forest dwellers in India. The central objective is to effectively secure community rights (CR) and forest tenure rights of Indigenous and local communities by creating recognition, awareness and utilization of the Community Forest Rights (CFR) provided by India’s Forest Rights Act (FRA) of 2006.
Though the FRA (2006) bestows community ownership and protection of forest lands, its poor implementation has added to the increased historical injustice faced by marginalized forest communities, especially in terms of land claims. With a strong focus on FRA, this project aims at facilitating CFR/CR recognition, and at catalyzing this model to several Indian states.
Launched on January 1, 2018 in collaboration with Tenure Facility, this project has the following goals:
ISB team is working on Forest Governance Data Visualization Portal that is already operational and will continue to be updated and upgraded. This data portal is capable of visualizing spatial, temporal and cross-sectional data. The data portal will allow users to visualize data spatially both at Administrative (state, district, and sub-district) and Political boundary (assembly constituency and parliamentary constituency) levels. Users can also generate preferential summary reports, graphs/charts, maps etc. and provide the option to download these.
