Building credible knowledge on urban land markets to share more widely throughout Africa
Urban LandMark has been working with regional partners over the last two years to improve our understanding of urban land markets in Africa. A key output of this work was the Handbook for Practitioners, entitled 'Urban Land Markets: Economic concepts and tools for engaging in Africa' which was developed by Urban LandMark with UN Habitat and the Global Land Tools Network.
Importance of title literacy
A joint initiative by Urban LandMark and the Department of Human Settlements is tackling one of the main obstacles preventing access to urban land and markets by the poor: the lack of title literacy in poor communities.
