The Global Land Tool Network (GLTN/the Network) is an alliance of global, regional and national partners aiming to contribute to poverty alleviation through land reform, improved land management and security of tenure. GLTN aims to improve global coordination on land, strengthen existing land networks, and improve the level and dissemination of knowledge about how to foster tenure security at scale. It promotes the establishment of a continuum of land rights, rather than just focusing on formal land titling. In order to do this it works with and through the alliance of GLTN partners to develop, test and promote pro-poor and gender-responsive land policies, tools and frameworks. Additionally, GLTN aims to improve global coordination on land by embracing and promoting a shared agenda and multi-faceted partnerships through the Network itself and by strengthening key land actors and networks.
As the Network is growing, the demand on maintaining and servicing the Network itself is becoming stronger. In order to continue to capitalize on the collective knowledge and initiatives of all partners of the Network, to improve the implementation of its communications and partnership strategy and to continue to developing partnership approaches that support the progress towards achieving results, the Secretariat will engage a consultant: Partnership and Networking Officer.
