Secure access to land and secure use of land, for housing-, agricultural- and other purposes is one of the cornerstones of making sustainable, positive development possible. As ZOA provides relief, hope and recovery to people impacted by conflicts and disasters, addressing land rights issues will need to be a permanent point of attention in our work.

ZOA developed guidelines for staff, implementing partners and other actors who are working on land issues in post-conflict and post-disaster contexts (or consider doing so). These guidelines are based on ZOA’s experience in working with land rights in the African Great Lakes region, studies done by current and previous partners and take into account global land rights standards.

The guidelines provide a basis for developing land rights projects and establish good practices and minimum requirements.

Central chapters in the guidelines discuss how to start a land rights project and available tools.
