The grants contribute to the development and integration of pro-poor tools and approaches for securing land and natural resource rights into development programmes in 15 selected countries within East and Southern Africa (ESA). The main objective of the grants has been to identify common issues and to enhance lesson sharing and knowledge management on land‐related tools and approaches amongst the various projects, country stakeholders and partners. The principal target group is poor women and men involved in 22 IFAD supported projects and programmes in ESA. They will benefit from tenure security measures that better enable them to invest in land and agriculture and to access credit. It also provides support for mapping, land and water rights, group rights, and inclusive business.
