Urban LandMark presents paper at World Bank Land and Poverty Conference:
23-26 April 2012, Washington, D.C.

The Annual World Bank Conference on Land and Poverty aims to foster dialogue and sharing of good practices by showcasing the diversity of reforms, approaches and experiences that are being implemented in the land sector around the world.

A paper titled One step at a time: Using survey data to inform an incremental tenure approach to land security in Maputo's peri-urban areas by Urban LandMark's Caroline Wanjiku-Kihato (Theme Coordinator: Regional Activities) and Lauren Royston (Theme Coordinator: Land Rights and Secure Tenure) was presented at the Conference during the session on Addressing land tenure in a context of rapid urbanization. The paper proposes innovative ways of working with existing local practices to build land security from the ground up, which are distinct from the more conventional policy of introducing large-scale titling schemes into urban slums.
