Acronym: 
ODI

The Overseas Development Institute (ODI) is the UK's leading independent think tank on international development and humanitarian issues.

Mission 

Our mission is to inspire and inform policy and practice which lead to the reduction of poverty, the alleviation of suffering and the achievement of sustainable livelihoods in developing countries.

We do this by locking together high quality applied research, practical policy advice, and policy-focused dissemination and debate.

We work with partners in the public and private sectors, in both developing and developed countries.

Values

  • Independence: ODI’s research, public affairs and policy advice are independent from its funders, and staff are able to challenge donor thinking and policy and the wider development consensus.
  • High quality: Best practice, innovative approaches and continuous improvement are ensured in research, policy advice and public affairs.
  • Fairness, diversity and equality: All staff and partners are treated fairly and with respect. ODI employment, disciplines and processes are appropriate for an institute focused on international development.
  • Working together: There is continuous effort to foster better relationships throughout the organisation.
  • Transparency and accountability: There is open reporting on the use of public funds, with full communication of our work to our donors, research subjects and partners.
  • Sustainability: Resources are used in a sustainable way that reflects consciousness of the impact on the environment. The organisation works in a way that is sustainable, backed by commitment to its long-term viability.

This report uses household-level data from 33, mostly developing, countries to analyse perceptions of tenure insecurity among women. We test two hypotheses: (1) that women feel more insecure than men; and (2) that increasing statutory protections for women, for instance by issuing joint named titles or making inheritance law more gender equal, increases de facto tenure security.

Property rights are a cornerstone of economic development and social justice. A fundamental way of understanding the strength of property rights is through citizens' perceptions of them. Yet perceptions of tenure security have never been collected at a global scale.

QTR brief - Sugar cover

África, África subsariana
New research by the Quantifying Tenure Risk (QTR) initiative finds that land disputes in the African sugar sector often cause long and costly delays, with 46% of disputes lasting over 10 years. Half of these are still unresolved today. In serious cases disputes close projects down, causing reputational damage to companies and investors involved, and up to $100.9 million in foregone revenue.

Depending on the size and location of their investment, oil palm producers and investors risk losing between $8.3 and $22.1 million due to operational delays caused by active land tenure disputes. These numbers have emerged from the Tenure Risk Tool (TRT), a due diligence tool designed by the Quantifying Tenure Risk (QTR) initiative to help businesses understand their exposure to tenure risk in sub-Saharan Africa. 
 
This brief shares findings from TRT analysis using data collected from palm oil producers in Liberia, Uganda and Côte d’Ivoire.

In this brief, the Quantifying Tenure Risk (QTR) initiative give an overview of key findings from their new research into the costs associated with land tenure dispute in Africa, and present the Tenure Risk Tool, a discounted cashflow model created to help investors avoid harmful investments.

New research by the Quantifying Tenure Risk (QTR) initiative has revealed that land disputes can cause losses of up to $101 million across a range of agricultural projects in Africa, while at the same time causing significant harm and stress to local communities who have a claim to the land.

In response, the initiative has developed a new publicly available economic modelling tool to accurately determine the potential cost of a dispute in a bid to help companies avoid harmful investments.

Tenure risk – or the risk of dispute between investors and local people over land or natural resource claims – is endemic in emerging markets. There are hundreds of recorded incidents of tenure disputes creating delays, violence, project cancellation and even bankruptcy at a corporate level. These tenure disputes create lose-lose outcomes for investors, local people and national governments while robbing emerging markets of the developmental benefits of responsible land investments.
