The aim of this grant, which complemented the Rural Markets Promotion Programme (PROMER), was to strengthen land and natural resource tenure security through the piloting of business partnerships between smallholder farmers, rural communities and outside investors. It examined the tools available for establishing and securing land rights in the context of such partnerships and for negotiating and documenting sustainable partnership arrangements, including the award of legal personality to the community groups involved. The project worked with communities that had already been delimited and which wanted to work with investors. In areas where investors interest was high but local rights had not been delimited, the Community Land Initiative and similar projects were used to delimit local rights ahead of a new pilot exercise.
