About us

"Building a world where people, in particular women, and responsible businesses have secure land tenure rights to invest, thrive and contribute to inclusive and sustainable economic development."

Land: Enhancing Governance for Economic Development (LEGEND) is a £38mn DFID global programme running from May 2015 to March 2021. LEGEND was designed to mobilise knowledge and capacity for design and delivery of new land-related programmes, improve land governance as an essential and inclusive basis for economic development, and strengthen land and property rights at scale.

LEGEND

LEGEND aims to improve the quality and impact of land investments so they contribute sustainably to growth while safeguarding rights and opportunities for poor people, rural and urban, and especially women. It has done this through: building policy coherence globally using internationally agreed principles and guidelines, such as the VGGT and CFS RAI principles; promoting application of emerging good practice emerging across countries; and stimulating the development of innovative tools and partnerships involving civil society, private sector and governments at global, country and local levels.
