USAID Land Tenure and Property Rights Portal

The USAID Land Tenure and Resource Management (LTRM) Office mission is to lead the United States Government to realize international efforts to clarify and strengthen the land tenure and property rights of all members of society—individuals, groups and legal entities, including those individuals and groups that are often marginalized, and the LTRM Office ensures that land governance systems are effective, accessible, and responsive. This goal can be achieved by testing innovative models for securing land tenure and property rights and disseminating best practice as it relates to securing land rights and improving resource governance within the USG and their development partners, such as the UW-Madison LTC. For more information: USAID Land Portal.

They do so in cost-effective ways, working with and through familiar local institutions in which local inhabitants have confidence, so they can improve their livelihoods. DAI believes that an integrated approach, incorporating all the key elements under a single program management framework, is the best approach. Learn more about the DAI.
