Following the endorsement of the Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure of Land, Fisheries and Forests in the Context of National Food Security (VGGT) in May 2012, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) – in collaboration with its partners – developed a Global Programme to support the implementation of the VGGT.
Sweden identified itself as a resource partner to support the implementation of the Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure of Land, Fisheries and Forests in the Context of National Food Security (VGGT).
The overall objective is to ensure women’s access to and
control over their land resources across Africa - supporting and enabling rural women’s voices. The action aims to effective independent and participatory monitoring by civil society of government progress on achieving targets related to the promotion of women’s land rights.

The project, by promoting secure tenure of land for both men and women will ensure rural development.
This list of countries is where an Land Governance Assessment Framework (LGAF) has been COMPLETED.
The LGAF is a diagnostic tool that is implemented at the local level in a collaborative fashion, that addresses the need for guidance to diagnose and benchmark land governance, and that is intended to help countries prioritize reforms and monitor progress over time.
The programme, which draws lessons from IRLADP, aims to enable 17,500 smallholder households to enhance their production levels to such a degree that they can provide for their household nutritional demands and deliver produce to viable markets by providing smallholder farm households a combination of 5,200 ha of irrigated land and soil- and water conservation infrastructure; promotion of good
