Chemonics believes that equitable, secure land tenure — both formal and informal — strengthens stakeholders’ rights, advances women’s empowerment and social inclusion, and is essential to sound stewardship of land and natural resources. Our work advances innovative partnerships for land-based investing, mitigates conflict and promotes stability, and broadens citizens’ engagement in legal processes. Through evidence-based research, we promote land tenure and rural development policy and action which supports inclusive and equitable livelihood access and land and resource governance.
