This publication features the key provisions on land (governance) in recent relevant international frameworks including the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (SDGs), the New Urban Agenda (Habitat III), the Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure of Land, Fisheries and Forests in the Context of National Food Security (VGGT), the Framework and Guidelines on Land Policy in Africa (F&G) and the Guiding Principles on Large- Scale Land-Based Investment in Africa (LSLBI Principles).

It presents where new issues or themes appeared, issues that have gained additional support and those that have received less attention in all these international frameworks. It also highlights the particularities, strengths and potential gaps of the individual frameworks, as well as their similarities, complementarities and differences. It further emphasizes the critical role of land governance in the realization of human rights, enjoyment of secure land
rights and in the overall achievement of sustainable development objectives.
