Land markets and investment

Nathan’s practical experience leading the implementation of market systems programs, combined with our experience working on land property rights, is unique to our organisation. We bring an understanding of the socio-economic and functional challenges of land administration as well as the different frameworks, policies, and tools to develop fit-for-purpose solutions for responsible and sustainable land governance. For example:

- Under FCDO's Ethiopia Land Investment for Transformation, we have developed interventions in the land rental, access to finance and agricultural markets to ensure that increased land tenure security generates positive outcomes for the poor and vulnerable populations.

- With GiZ we have applied market systems thinking to analyse land-related challenges generated by rapid growth in the urban and peri-urban areas of Ethiopia’s cities and develop evidence-based policy recommendations that can be sustainably adopted.
