The overall objective of the Guidelines for Impact Evaluation of Land Tenure and Governance Interventions is to inform and strengthen the design and implementation of future land tenure and governance interventions. In doing so, more sustainable tenure security and related impact on poverty, food security, gender equality, environmental sustainability will be achieved.
The Guidelines aim to serve as a tool for both researchers and land sector experts in designing and conducting land impact evaluations and ultimately to broaden the evidence of what works, what does not work and why, regarding measurement to improve land tenure and governance. They are based on a desk review of land evidence, and in-depth consultations with evaluation experts, insights from stakeholders including from GLTN and the GlobalDonor Working Group onLand (GDWGL), and researchers who have conducted land impact evaluations.
The guidelines are the result of a partnership between IFAD and GLTN, and in consultation with the GDWGL, to improve access to tools needed to evaluate land tenure and governance interventions.
