Indigenous peoples from different countries (Peru- Latin America, D.R. Congo- Africa and Thailand- Asia) share some of their main issued related to tenure of, respectively, land, forests, and fisheries. They explain, in simple words, the Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure of land, fisheries and forests in the context of national food security, linking them with the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. Topics such as the Free, Prior and Informed Consent and rights of women to land, are covered, and concepts such as governance of land and collective and customary rights are explained. The voluntary guidelines are presented as an internationally valid tool that contributes to the identification of concrete solutions.
