This programme funded by the European Union (EU) aims at enhancing the joint implementation of the VGGT (Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure of Land , Fisheries and Forests in the Context of National Food Security) and the F&G (Framework and Guidelines of the Land Policy Initiative (LPI)) at Pan African level and at supporting and consolidating the implementation of the EU Land governance in 10 African countries (Burundi, Côte d’Ivoire, Niger, Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia, South Sudan*, Angola, Malawi, Eswatini). The systematization of the knowledge sharing and aggregation of the lessons learnt amongst the 10 In–country projects will feed the support for integrated implementation at pan African level. On the other hand the Pan-African level component will focus on fostering political leadership on land governance, elaborating the monitoring and evaluation core system, preparing tailor made tools for joint implementation. The project will be handled by two FAO officers (P5& P4) based in the LPI’s premises in Addis Ababa to ensure an optimal synergy for the integrated implementation. the programme aims at enhancing the land governance in Africa.
