LAND 2030

The objective of the Land 2030 Global Partnership Umbrella Program is to assist developing countries in achieving land tenure security for all men and women. The Umbrella aims to enhance the commitment of both development partners and developing countries and mobilize resources to reach ambitious targets of securing land and property rights by 2030.​

To achieve this, the Umbrella aims to increase the number of countries that are in the process of or have achieved tenure security for all, while expanding the number of people with access to tenure security. Through its activities, the Land 2030 Global Partnership Umbrella envisions to contribute to global impacts as projected by the global SDGs ensuing equal rights to ownership and control over land, as well as the World Bank Twin Goals of ending extreme poverty and promoting shared prosperity.​

The Land 2030 Global Partnership Umbrella focuses on four activity areas:​

  1. Client Capacity Building and Training to assist countries in acquiring the capacity to reform policies and formulate projects;​
  2. Knowledge Curation and Sharing to gather and create a strong knowledge base of operational best practices and innovations, proven policies, strategies and action plans;​
  3. Operational Investment Capabilities to strengthen operations through direct support to Bank-financed projects and indirect support through knowledge and lessons to partners' projects; and​
  4. Strategic Partnerships to closely collaborate and build synergies with other players in the land sector at global, regional and national levels, both within and beyond the Bank.​

The Land 2030 Global Partnership Umbrella envisions three cross-cutting thematic focus areas:​

  1. Establishing robust mechanisms to increase women's rights to land and property and economic empowerment;​
  2. Scaling up efforts to address the land-related aspects of fragility, instability, and forced migration; and​
  3. Increasing the use and application of technologies to bridge the digital and geospatial divide.
