Tapping the potential , The Role of Grassroots in Land Policy Implementation
This report illustrates four examples of strengthening grassroots organizations engagement with formal land policy implementation processes. The premise is that land policy implementation and any land interventions whether in India, Tanzania, Peru or the Philippines, or elsewhere will be far more effective in helping poor rural and urban communities when those communities are meaningfully involved.
The report shows how the Global Land Tool Network is advocating for this principle of grassroots engagement. Through providing small grants, GLTN is enabling a process of learning and communication to take place, with the aim of grassroots solutions eventually making the critical leap from pilots to large scale impact. The examples described in this report intend to build confidence among stakeholders from different sectors towards the goal of secure tenure for all.
