This publication presents a framework for tackling urban-rural land challenges. It is designed to help a range of stakeholders in developing countries understand how to adopt an inclusive approach to land management and administration initiatives to produce a balance in urban and rural development. It provides structured guidance for addressing land-specific problems within the intersection of urban and rural development.
The publication presents action-oriented steps and recommendations that should be pursued in urban-rural interdependent development. It also expands current knowledge about urban-rural linkages in the context of land tenure challenges. It is hoped that the publication will inspire additional policy debate on securing land tenure on an urban-rural continuum rather than viewing these areas in isolation.
