A growing number of programmes support land tenure regularisation (LTR), and several are likely to emerge against a wave of legal and policy reforms recognising customary rights (Kenya, Gabon, Mali, Liberia), and prospective laws in others (Nepal, DRC, Cameroon). Strengthening land administration requires policy and legal reforms, clarity on land rights with formalisation and registration at scale, spatial mapping, digitalisation of national records and land information systems, together with institutional development.
The webinar, which took place on July 2, did:
- Introduce evidences of LTR programs: what is the trade-off between increased technological capabilities, fit-for-purpose new technologies, and social participation?
- Present the land regularisation value chains: what options for multi-stakeholder platforms (MSPs) to engage in the design or implementation of LTR programs?
- Promote experience sharing among civil society and governments, and other relevant stakeholders involved in LTR programs.
