Securing land tenure for climate resilient informal settlements: A case study of an integrated approach in Afghanistan

This case study presents a pilot project that integrates land tenure and climate resilience programme tools in an informal settlement in the city of Herat: Afghanistan’s second largest city and the capital of the drought-prone Western Region. The findings provide evidence that interventions to secure tenure and construct climate resilient community infrastructure have mutually strengthening outcomes for residents of informal settlements. The study identifies programme tools for upscaling integrated land and climate interventions for long-term resilience outcomes in informal settlements across Afghanistan.
