This guide was developed to assist non-lawyers in better understanding agricultural investment contracts, such as those available on OpenLandContracts.org. Agricultural investment contracts can be complex, and some provisions may be difficult to understand. The Guide provides explanations for a range of common provisions, and includes a Glossary of legal and technical terms.
The Manuals and Guidelines-resource type on the Land Portal brings together all the types of resources that aim to provide some sort of capacity building or learning-functions. Different terminologies are used by different organizations and institutions, such as frameworks, how-to-documents, guides, manuals, guidelines and general principles.
