ODI

The Overseas Development Institute (ODI) is the UK's leading independent think tank on international development and humanitarian issues.

Mission 

Our mission is to inspire and inform policy and practice which lead to the reduction of poverty, the alleviation of suffering and the achievement of sustainable livelihoods in developing countries.

We do this by locking together high quality applied research, practical policy advice, and policy-focused dissemination and debate.

We work with partners in the public and private sectors, in both developing and developed countries.

Values

  • Independence: ODI’s research, public affairs and policy advice are independent from its funders, and staff are able to challenge donor thinking and policy and the wider development consensus.
  • High quality: Best practice, innovative approaches and continuous improvement are ensured in research, policy advice and public affairs.
  • Fairness, diversity and equality: All staff and partners are treated fairly and with respect. ODI employment, disciplines and processes are appropriate for an institute focused on international development.
  • Working together: There is continuous effort to foster better relationships throughout the organisation.
  • Transparency and accountability: There is open reporting on the use of public funds, with full communication of our work to our donors, research subjects and partners.
  • Sustainability: Resources are used in a sustainable way that reflects consciousness of the impact on the environment. The organisation works in a way that is sustainable, backed by commitment to its long-term viability.

This paper is one of three thematic case studies resulting from a set of pilot projects undertaken jointly by civil society and private business partners from 2016–2019 in five countries in sub-Saharan Africa. These pilots sought to test how private companies could collaborate with civil society organisations and other stakeholders to implement responsible agribusiness investments that recognise and respect community land rights, and to develop innovative tools and approaches that could be adopted and implemented at greater scale.

Global

The articles in this LEGEND Bulletin highlight the tangible contribution made by the UK Government to land governance globally through LEGEND and other programmes, not least in promoting responsible land investment (RLI) and governance. Promoting increased investment in agriculture and other sectors is a key priority of DFID’s economic development strategy. With this in mind, UK government investment through LEGEND reflects an understanding that good land governance underpins good investment.
