The Community Land Value Chain (CaVaTeCo in Portuguese) is an approach that can improve tenure security and management of community lands and natural resources in the context of large-scale land investments. CaVaTeCo provides the conceptual base for the LEGEND Project, implemented by ORAM and Terra Firma in Mozambique’s Districts of Namarroi and Ile in northern Zambézia province.
This project is part of DFID’s LEGEND Challenge Fund. This Fund enables civil society agencies to test innovative approaches to land, and to show companies how they can implement practical approaches that secure community land rights and livelihoods and the sustainability of land-based business investment.
This LEGEND Project is pioneering the delimitation of family lands in Mozambique using the CaVaTeCo approach. This Guide is the first in a series that are intended to document technical aspects and lessons learned about the use of CaVaTeCo in practice. It explains the key steps in the process of land delimitation, in order to help field staff to correctly use the approach.
