Introducing the Quantifying Tenure Risk initiative: Assessing tenure risk and providing support to investors and businesses | Land Portal

The acquisition of agricultural land is growing at an unprecedented rate in Africa, as global demand for food and resources grows. Research shows that land disputes are also on the rise, exposing businesses to severe risks at the project level. The problem is endemic and growing – companies want evidence-based approaches to address this new reality and understand their exposure to risk. The Quantifying Tenure Risk (QTR) financial model blends verified company data with detailed case research to accurately assess tenure risk and provide tailored support to investors and businesses.

The QTR project conducted jointly by the Overseas Development Institute (ODI), a UK based international development think tank and TMP Systems, a consultancy network that helps the private sector solve complex environmental and social problems, have sought to develop a methodology to assess and demonstrate the levels of  land related risks to business that investors and companies face in land-based investments in agriculture.
