Making Land Rights Work: ZOA Land Rights Guidelines


If the aim of humanitarian and development actors is to contribute to a world with long-lasting peace, a world without poverty and hunger, then they cannot ignore the issue of land rights. Even for more short-term objectives such as settling refugees, re-covering livelihoods and re-building housing and other property, aspects relating to land rights such as access to land and water play a central role.

These ZOA guidelines present: (i) ZOA’s experiences with land rights projects (approaches, practices and lessons learnt); how to start a land rights projects; addressing land conflicts; international standards (SDG’s, gender, conflict sensitivity and protection); tools; and ZOA cases.
