Quarter 3 activities for the SECURE Project focused mainly on better understanding the challenges of securing land and resource tenure in the pilot communities and commencing the development and plan for the subsequent land rights formalization process to be piloted by the MoL. Tenure assessments have now been completed for all four project pilot communities, and individual reports are being finalized. The SECURE team and the staff from the participating agencies and partner organizations have learned a tremendous amount about the land and resource tenure arrangements and situations in each community, and have drafted specific recommendations for moving forward. The following quarter will see the commencement of significant implementation activities.
