pdf.png Handbook on Best Practices, Security of Tenure and Access to Land (Eng - 2003) HOT

(1 vote)

Download

The Handbook on Best Practices, Security of Tenure and Access to Land--Implementation of the Habitat Agenda (2003) reviews material produced by UN Habitat partners up to and including 1999, in terms of the implementation of the Habitat Agenda. At the time of publishing, this document was the most comprehensive global overview of progress made in countries towards achieving the Habitat Agenda in the area of land tenure and land management/administration. While a few of the examples in the Handbook are no longer current, many examples remain best practice, and the general trends identified remain cutting edge at the global level. The breadth and depth of information presented in the Handbook is intended to encourage and stimulate further innovative efforts to provide more inclusive land access and security of tenure for the urban poor. The Handbook will be useful to anyone wishing to benefit from the wisdom and lessons learned by UN Habitat, other organizations and over 100 academic experts in the areas of land legislation and management.

pdf.png Institutional Harmonisation Processes in the Kenyan Land Sector: A Case Study of the Time Period 2003-2007 (Eng - 2008) HOT

(0 votes)

Download

UN-Habitat recognises the need for better knowledge compilation and exchange on land issues and harmonisation alignment coordination (HAC). Through the Global Land Tool Network initiative UN-Habitat commissioned this case study on institutional harmonisation in the Kenyan land sector.


The objectives of the study were to chronologically document institutional harmonisation processes in the Kenyan land sector between 2003 and 2007, to describe challenges experienced and to analyse the roles of different partners as well as the methodologies and tools used to foster HAC processes. The analysis of tools was carried out considering GLTN core values such as gender, equity, governance, affordability and a pro-poor orientation.


The study provides recommendations for future activities in the Kenyan land sector. It also gives options for UN-Habitat and the GLTN to strengthen HAC processes in member countries. The study's findings and recommendations also inform the development of guidelines for institutional harmonisation processes, which will be disseminated by the GLTN among network members. For copies of these guidelines, please contact the GLTN secretariat or visit our website (see below).

pdf.png How to Establish an Effective Land Sector (Eng - 2008) HOT

(0 votes)

Download

This guide presents a general overview on institutional harmonisation processes, i.e. the various factors and tools included in fostering institutional harmonisation in a sector. The experiences informing this document mainly result from the tacit knowledge of the land sector in Kenya by UN-Habitat and the Global Land Tool Network (GLTN). They are complemented by experiences from other sectors (such as water, governance and decentralisation), African countries and from state as well as nonstate actors. Non-state actors include civil society organisations, the private sector and professional associations.

pdf.png How to Develop a Pro-poor Land Policy: Process, Guide and Lessons (Eng - 2007) HOT

(0 votes)

Download

Developing new land policies can be a long and difficult process. It is even more so if the policies are to be pro-poor – if they are to help correct the disadvantages that poor people typically suffer in many areas of land policy.

 

This guide suggests a way forward. Based on experience in various countries in Asia and Africa, it is not a recipe-book, but outlines a process that can be adapted as appropriate to the situation in each country and the specific aspect of land policy that needs to be addressed. This process is participatory: it involves a wide range of stakeholders from all aspects of land policy, including civil society and the poor themselves. Including all these groups is vital if the resulting policies are to be politically acceptable, technically feasible, pro-poor and capable of being enforced.

 

This guide is intended for Ministers and senior policymakers responsible for land issues, donors, professionals, consultants, and NGOs involved in developing land policies.

pdf.png UN-Habitat and GLTN Youth-Led Action Research on Land Commencement Workshop Report (Eng - 2013) HOT

(1 vote)

The land challenge is central to the broader youth dynamics of migration, employment, livelihoods and belonging. The more than 1.8 billion youth living worldwide represent not only a land challenge, but an untapped potential in moving the tenure security agenda forward. Recognizing this, the Global Land Tool Network has partnered with UN-Habitat to develop youth responsive land tools through the Youth-led Action Research on Land program. Five action research projects will be undertaken by youth organizations in Brazil, Kenya, Nepal, Yemen and Zimbabwe. Each focuses on the engagement of youth in land decision making, the needs of youth relating to land, and the development of tools that will support pro-poor, pro-youth good land governance. The projects will help advance the development of youth-inclusive and participatory approaches to land governance, by identifying youth as both a target group for tenure security as well as important drivers of change in the land sector.
