Following attendance as an observer of the Partner Meeting of the Global Land Tool Network in The Hague, The Netherlands in November 2013, LANDac joined the GLTN Network on 26 February 2014.
The Global Land Tool Network (GLTN) is an alliance of global regional and national partners contributing to poverty alleviation through land reform, improved land management and security of tenure particularly through the development and dissemination of pro-poor and gender-sensitive land tools.
GLTN has developed a global partnership on land issues pulling together global partners, as well as many individual members. These partners include international networks of civil society, International Finance Institutions, international research and training institutions, donors and professional bodies. It continues to take a more holistic approach to land issues by improving global coordination on land, through the establishment of a continuum of land rights, rather than just focus on individual land titling, through improving and developing pro-poor land management, as well as land tenure tools, by unblocking existing initiatives; assisting in strengthening existing land networks, assisting in the development of gendered land tools which are affordable and useful to the grassroots and improving the general dissemination of knowledge about how to implement security of tenure.
The network’s objectives include the following:
Through its network and current activities, LANDac will contribute to the dissemination of GLTN values and outputs and participate in GLTN partner events.
