Tanzania Youth Land Rights Assessment

More than 65% of youths (ages 15-35) find employment in Tanzania’s agricultural sector, yet they lack the proper foundations and equal opportunities to reach their full potential. Youth face immense challenges when it comes to land rights, precluding them from participating in sustainable agricultural practices and using technology to improve production. Tanzania must develop youth-responsive land policies and implementation to change this status quo.

In the following assessment, Landesa Tanzania provides an overview of Tanzanian law as it pertains to youth land rights, identifies gaps and challenges in youth exercising land rights — including gender-based barriers for young women to access land — and issues policy recommendations for strengthening youth access and rights to land.
