LANDac is a partnership between Dutch organizations active in the field of land governance with the aim to optimize the link between land governance, sustainable development and poverty alleviation by generating, analyzing, synthesizing and disseminating knowledge. Some of its activities include PhD programmes, short-term research in collaboration with Southern partners, an annual Summer School on Land Governance, organization of meetings and lectures and providing a platform for a wider range of stakeholders involved in and interested in land governance in the Netherlands.
The grants contribute to the development and integration of pro-poor tools and approaches for securing land and natural resource rights into development programmes in 15 selected countries within East and Southern Africa (ESA). The main objective of the grants has been to identify common issues and to enhance lesson sharing and knowledge management on land‐related tools and approaches amongst the various projects, country stakeholders and partners. The principal target group is poor women and men involved in 22 IFAD supported projects and programmes in ESA.
The aim of the project is to improve the access of 40,000 rural poor households to land and water resources in the Menabe and Melaky regions to optimize agricultural production and ensure sustainable growth of their income, while limiting migration to urban centres.

A Community based forestry assessment framework/tool was developed and tested to evaluate the extent, enabling environment including tenure, and effectiveness in order to identify areas for improvement. The framework provides for assessment of a range of tenure regimes providing for participatory forestry in country.
The objective is to contribute to increased economic opportunities and access to enabling infrastructure services, as measured by an increase in jobs and formal firms, in Targeted Regions.

This overall objective is to strengthen the immediate capacity to respond effectively to the food security and locust crises. The project will facilitate rapid and low-cost transfer of legal land rights to farming households, and provide technical assistance over 36 months to maintain essential capacity for monitoring land policy implementation, such as the collection of nationwide data on Communal Land Offices and National State Land Administration Services, maintenance of the Land Observatory’s website, and the continued publication of data and periodic information sheets.
The goal of the grant to the ILC was to enable poor women and men to achieve secure and equitable access to and control over land to enable them to increase their food security and overcome poverty and vulnerability.
