Zambia Land Alliance is a network of NGOs advocating for just land policies and laws that take into account the interests of the poor. The alliance originated in 1997 to coordinate the efforts of its member NGOs. The formation of the alliance was necessitated by the Zambian Government’s Land Reform process initiated in the early 1990s.
“A Zambia in which the rural and urban poor have secured access, ownership and control over land for development.”
The Land Alliance is a platform for collective action committed to promoting equitable access and secured ownership of land by the rural poor, through lobbying and advocacy, networking, research and community partnership.
The strategic objectives of the Zambia Land Alliance are as follows:
1. Lobby and advocate for policies and laws that are inclusive of the rural and urban poor, most of who depend on land for their livelihood.
2. Conduct research on land related laws and policies, and investigate and document the efforts by various stakeholders on equitable access and ownership of land.
3. Raise awareness on land issues.
4. Network and collaborate with national, regional and international bodies to share experience and discussions on the future courses of action on land issues as they relate to poor rural families.
