Because Landesa partners with governments, our work is leveraged, with hundreds of thousands or sometimes millions of women and men benefiting from a new innovative program or progressive law.
With secure land rights as a foundation, other development efforts — focused on education, food security, gender equality, public health, conservation — can gain traction.
In nearly 50 years, working in more than 50 countries, Landesa has helped strengthen land rights for more than 180 million families.
