Projects are required to show that legal ownership (or tenure) of the project area for the duration of the project, can be demonstrated.

Confirmation of the current landowner/tenant (if leased) are required at validation and every verification.

Land Ownership

Other suitable forms of evidence of ownership include:

If the land is leased, a certified copy of the lease is also required to confirm the landowner's consent.
