Land Tools for Secure Tenure for All

Danilo Antonio, Cyprian Selebalo, John Gitau, Samuel Mabikke

United Nations Human Settlements Programme, Kenya

Established in 2006, the Global Land Tool Network is a growing coalition of more than 70 international partners concerned with rural and urban land issues, working together to contribute to poverty reduction and sustainable development through promoting secure land and property rights for all, demonstrated through country-level interventions. The Network builds on a shared understanding that delivering land rights to the poor requires a development of pro-poor land tools at scale within the framework of the continuum of land rights approach. Access to land and secure tenure is a key requisite to alleviate poverty, food security and promote sustainable development in developing countries.

The global agenda, as set out by the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), includes six goals (goals 1, 2, 5, 11, 15 and 16) which have a significant land component mentioned in the targets; the implementation of the pro-poor land tools will not only support the promotion of tenure security and sustainable use of land but will also provide a means of measuring them.

The overall objective of the MasterClass will be to provide an overview of GLTN land tools, including the Fit for Purpose Land Administration, and application contexts.
