Land Tenure Security in Selected Countries – Global Report


Land Tenure Security in Selected Countries

In this publication, the issue of tenure security is addressed and assessed in several countries where government, civil society, the private sector and development cooperation initiatives have been implemented for decades. The selected case studies from fifteen countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America ensure not only a geographic balance but they also represent countries with different socio-economic and land-related histories and that have followed different pathways. The studies’ key findings underline the still precarious state of tenure security in many countries. The findings also show best practices for legal and administrative reforms that have generated incentives for long-term investment in land, or incentives to include the poor more comprehensively. Led by the Global Land Tool Network (GLTN) the publication is a joint endeavour with the Chair of Land Management at the Technische Universität München (TUM) and the Land Management Sector Project of Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ). The country studies presented here have been prepared by Alumni of the TUM’s Master’s Programme Land Management and Land Tenure who can best bridge the demands for most recent and high quality research results on tenure security and intimate country-specific knowledge and experience
