The Community Land Value Chain (CaVaTeCo in Portuguese) is an approach that can improve tenure security and management of community lands and natural resources in the context of large-scale land investments. CaVaTeCo provides the conceptual base for the project "Piloting the ‘Community Land Value Chain’ approach in Mozambique: The delimitation and formalisation of community and family land holdings within the Portucel plantation concessions of Zambézia Province, Mozambique", implemented by ORAM and Terra Firma in the Districts of Namarroi and Ile. This project uses an integrated approach to securing community, family and individual land rights by partnering with Portucel, a major investor in plantation forestry.
The project involves the creation of 20 representative entities at community level; development of detailed community land use plans; certified tenure over land resources for 14,000 households, and the creation of a legitimate local land administration system. Together, this will demonstrate an affordable system for confirming locally-legitimate land rights at scale, in line with national law and regulations.
This project is part of DFID’s LEGEND Challenge Fund. This Fund enables civil society agencies to test innovative approaches to land, and to show companies how they can implement practical approaches that improve land rights and livelihoods and the sustainability of land-based business investment.
