landac logo LANDac, the Netherlands Academie on Land Governance for Equitable and Sustainable Development, is a partnership between several Dutch organisations and their Southern partners involved in development-related research, policy and practice. The partners share a concern for increasing land inequality and new land-related conflicts, and how land governance – rules and practices on access to land – can be used to promote equitable and sustainable development in the Global South.

The Dutch partner organizations are the International Development Studies (IDS) group at Utrecht University (leading partner), African Studies Centre, Agriterra, the Sociology of Development and Change (SDC) group at Wageningen University, HIVOS, the Royal Tropical Institute (KIT), the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and Enclude Solutions.

LANDac is one of the IS-Academies, a series of programs sponsored by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, to improve and strengthen linkages between academia and development practitioners in the field of international cooperation (IS Academies for International Cooperation)

Mission: LANDac aims at bringing together researchers, policy makers and practitioners in the field of land governance and development.
