Notwithstanding the global recognition on the threat corruption poses to sustainable development, there is a worrying limited focus on land corruption. High-level policy discussions platforms such as the World Bank Land and Poverty Conference have inadequately focused on land corruption. This is despite many studies by Transparency International (TI) and its National Chapters (NC), FAO, DFID, Land Legend and Land Governance Assessment Frameworks by World Bank on the effect of corruption and land and its larger impact on gender and human rights. Against this backdrop, National Chapters of Transparency International seek to convene a Master Class to amplify the global understanding of land corruption and the impact it has on the attainment of Sustainable Development Goals 1,2, 5 and 11. More profoundly the Masterclass will provide a platform for TI NCs to share some of the advocacy tools that TI has developed in response to the problem of land corruption.
