Since its founding, Landesa has partnered with governments, communities and other stakeholders in more than 50 countries to advance pro-poor, gender-sensitive land rights reforms using law and policy tools. These reforms have helped alleviate poverty, reduce hunger and ease conflict over land for more than 120 million women and men.
This transformation—from land insecurity or landlessness to secure rights to land—has boosted agricultural productivity in the developing world by billions of dollars per year, improved health, nutrition and school enrollment in hundreds of villages across the globe, and placed scores of billions of dollars in new land wealth in the hands of the rural poor.
Landesa has acted as an advisor to top national policy makers in China, providing data-driven solutions to strengthen land rights for tens of million farming families.
Support China’s Central Government in its efforts to ensure that all of China’s 200 million farming families have secure land tenure and can invest in their land to improve their harvests and their lives.
