The Master Class by Transparency International (TI) through its National Chapters seek to present evidence on anti-corruption solutions to land governance challenges. The paper is informed by an analysis of various interventions by TI’s Land and Corruption Project in Africa. The paper will highlight how such interventions as participatory video documentaries, community open land dialogues, mobile legal aid clinics among many other interventions have created opportunities for local communities affected by land corruption to seek redress and demand for justice, transparency and accountability. The paper seeks to inspire the adoption of such interventions by actors with interest in improved land governance as well as the attainment of Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) 1 on ending poverty in all its forms, SDG 5 on achieving gender equality and empowering all women and girls and SDG 11 on making cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable.
