The Global Programme Responsible Land Policy (GPRLP), launched in November 2015, is based on the assumption that secure land rights can

➊ improve food security and foster investment,
➋ lead to sustainable land use,
➌ reduce conflicts and
➍ improve women’s access to land as well as that of marginalized groups.

As the number of people with secured land rights is growing, the questions concerning the impacts of secured land
rights become more important. A qualitative assessment of the impacts in Madagascar, Benin and Ethiopia was commissioned to assess whether these assumptions have materialized or are likely to materialize. Results from two earlier impact studies conducted in two regions of Uganda (Teso in 2020 and Central Region in 2021) have also been included to complete the picture. The results of this rapid appraisal serve to orient the future focus of BMZ assistance and there is a need to illustrate the merits of secured land rights in the context of upcoming new global challenges. The assessment was done by the University of Parakou (Benin), CIRAD (Madagascar) and a consulting firm in Ethiopia.
