About Me: 

Landesa
Securing land rights for the world’s poorest

Landesa partners with governments and local organizations to help provide secure land rights to the world’s poor. Since 1967, the organization has helped more than 100 million families. Landesa currently works in China, India, and throughout Sub-Saharan Africa.

Why Land Rights?
The overwhelming majority of the world’s poor live in rural areas and depend on land to survive. Yet more than half of these poor rural families don’t have legal control over the land they rely on for farming and income. And increasingly, their control over the land is under threat.

When families have secure rights to land, they have the security, incentive, and opportunity to invest in their land to sustainably increase their harvests and reap the benefits—improved nutrition, health, and education —for generations.

My Passions: 
Securing land rights
My Vision for the Future: 
We envision a world free of poverty. We see a future in which all who depend on land for their well-being have secure land rights – one of the most basic, powerful resources for lifting oneself and one’s family out of poverty.
My Areas of Expertise: 
land rights, gender, land governance, asset ownership, project design, advocacy, monitoring & evaluation
