LAND-at-scale is a land governance support programme for developing countries. The livelihood of a large part of the world’s population depends directly on having secure access to land. LAND-at-scale aims to contribute to fair and just tenure security and access to land and natural resources for all. This will lead to more sustainable and efficient use of land and natural resources for food, housing and production. It will also reduce conflicts and competing claims over land.
The grant provides support to improve the understanding of changing land access and use by poor rural people in sub-Saharan Africa and to use that understanding for improved design, implementation and impact of development policies, programmes and projects.
With the LANDac Land Forum we aim to discuss in a multi-stakeholder platform under what conditions foreign and domestic agribusiness can contribute to food security and inclusive and sustainable development in Africa, Asia and Latin America.

The project will focus on systematically inventorying actual land use in two districts of Central Uganda in order to create a database and on-hand evidence on actual land use by small-scale farmers on private Mailo-Land parcels.
