(0 votes)

Nearly 500 million Africans currently live in slums. Urban operations are one of the main tools for improving living conditions in informal settlements, where land tenure, housing, development and services largely function outside any official system. While progress has undoubtedly been made over the last decade, these operations have had mixed social, economic, urban and environmental impacts.

Designing a Land Records System for the Poor is the first attempt to fill the gaps in the development of new forms of land recordation to assist the implementation of a continuum of land rights approach at scale. It is about the development of the initial design of a pro-poor land recordation system - a recording system aimed at supporting the recognition and protection of a range of rights of the poor.

pdf.png Handling land: Innovative tools for land governance and secure tenure (Eng - 2012) HOT

(0 votes)

Download

Everyone has a relationship to land. It is an asset that, with its associated resources, allows its owner access to loans, to build their houses and to set up small businesses in cities. In rural areas, land is essential for livelihoods, subsistence and food security. However, land is a scarce resource governed by a wide range of rights and responsibilities. And not everyone’s right to land is secure. Mounting pressure and competition mean that improving land governance - the rules, processes and organizations through which decisions are made about land - is more urgent than ever.

pdf.png Brief - Land Records for the Poor: Participatory. Affordable. Credible. Equitable (Eng - 2012) HOT

(0 votes)

Download

Land registration is not a neutral process. It usually aims to create "active" tenure security so that documented ("titled") land can be managed in a formalized system. For poor people, the priority is "passive" tenure security so that they may avoid eviction or losing their right to the land. A "continuum of land recording" approach can develop into one that also increasingly supports "active" tenure security, but which begins the process from the more protective "passive" side.

pdf.png Monitoring Security of Tenure in Cities: People, Land and Policies (Eng - 2011) HOT

(0 votes)

Download

This publication, Monitoring Security of Tenure in Cities: People, Land and Policies, presents an innovative method to ascertain the extent to which security of tenure can be measured at three main levels. Targeting cities in developing countries, the methodological framework presented in this publication is entrusted in the concept of continuum of land rights where tenure can be realised at various levels: individual, household, settlement or community, city and national levels. Various options to measure tenure security at each of these levels are presented. You will also find in this publication a review of the experience of several agencies and individual academics in measuring tenure security. From these reviews, lessons are drawn and gaps are identified, which then formed the basis of the range of methods presented in this report.

pdf.png Designing and Evaluating Land Tools with a Gender Perspective: A Training Package for Land Professionals (Eng - 2011) HOT

(0 votes)

It cannot be assumed that women and men benefit in the same way from initiatives in the land sector. Depending on the political, economic and cultural context, it is often women, and particularly poor women, who face significant barriers in obtaining land.

 

The Gender Evaluation Criteria has been developed as a practical tool to systematically measure the impact of land tools and interventions on women and men, so that one has concrete evidence on their gender dimensions.
