Promoting women’s land rights in land investment in Tanzania - using RIPL engendered guidebooks
Since the mid-2000s, large-scale investments in agriculture have increased sharply in developing countries, driven by rising commodity prices, strategic concerns of food-importing countries, and commercial opportunities. In Tanzania, there are a growing number of large-scale agricultural investments by the private sector, often involving the acquisition of large tracts of land. While such investments are frequently carried out for the means of improving food security and reducing poverty, they are often implicated in contributing to farmland encroachment and displacement of rural people, exacerbating food insecurity and poverty among women as small-scale food producers. This Master Class provides recommendations on how the Responsible Investments in Property and Land (RIPL) Guidebooks can be utilized to guide land-based investments in Tanzania to better ensure that women meaningfully participate and benefit from such investments. The RIPL Guidebooks offer valuable information for governments, investors and civil society groups in regard to designing policies and practices.

How to conduct impact evaluation of land tenure and governance interventions, from theory to practice
1IFAD, Italy; 2UN-Habitat, Kenya; 3MCC, United States of America
The Masterclass will focus on how the newly-published "Guidelines for Impact Evaluation of Land Tenure and Governance Interventions" can be used and applied for the evaluation of stand-alone tenure security activities, as well as for projects of which land tenure activities are integrated with other components. Strengthening impact assessment of land tenure activities can inform and enhance the design and implementation of future land tenure and governance interventions to best support lasting tenure security and achieve related impacts on poverty, food security, gender equality, environmental sustainability, and security linked to Agenda 2030.

Tackling land corruption risks to achieve the SDGs.

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.
