LEGEND Land Policy Bulletin - Issue 1 - Why land governance?
Weak land governance and insecure property rights constrain economic development — but land offers opportunity to enable
and drive inclusive growth. ‘Land: Enhancing Governance for
Economic Development’ (LEGEND) is a new global DFID programme
designed to mobilise knowledge and capacity for design and delivery of new country programmes, improve land governance as an essential and inclusive basis for economic development, and strengthen land and property rights at scale.
Land is central to livelihoods, culture and identity for millions of people across the developing world. But there is growing concern that people's connection to their land is being undermined, due to large-scale land deals for agricultural investments in Africa, Asia and Latin America.
