This guide aims to help all stakeholders and companies who have a link with investments that affect land and property rights apply due diligence in their operations. It will provide them with guidance to better monitor compliance with the recently adopted Voluntary Guidelines, but also with other relevant instruments such as the Principles for Responsible Investment in Agriculture and Food Systems, and thereby address concerns among rural communities and civil society groups that investments in partner countries are sustainable, that the added value they generate is shared equitably between the farmers and enterprises involved, and local land and property rights are respected.

Mokoro is pleased to host the ’Land Rights in Africa’ site as a contribution to the land rights dialogue and related debates. This website was created in January 2000 by Robin Palmer, and was originally housed by Oxfam GB, where Robin worked as a Land Rights Adviser. A library of resources on land rights in Africa – with a particular focus on women’s land rights and on the impact of land grabbing in Africa – the portal has been well received by practitioners, researchers and policy makers, and has grown considerably over the years.
