Project info

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.
