The Land and Resource Rights initiative is making strides to further its goals, including:

  • In collaboration with many of the world’s leading land rights organizations, we are developing an online information platform for communities and their representatives to document their land and natural resource rights. The interactive platform will include maps of community rights as well as other critical information so that governments, corporations, civil society organizations and the public can recognize the rights of rural communities.

  • We are conducting research on several critical property rights issues, including: 1) the role of secure property rights to local well-being and sound land management; 2) the implications of overlapping land and natural resource rights to rural livelihoods and environmental management; and 3) the law and practice of restricting and extinguishing private property rights, focusing on land acquisition procedures for agricultural investments.
