Global Land Tool Network

Founding Year: 2006



The Global Land Tool Network is a “dynamic and multisectoral alliance of  international partners committed to increasing access to land and tenure security for all, with a particular focus on the poor, women and youth.” The Network’s partners include “international civil society organizations, research and training institutions, multilateral organizations, and international professional bodies.” GLTN “develops, disseminates and implements pro-poor and gender-responsive Land Tools that contribute to land reform, good land governance, inclusive land administration, sustainable land management, and functional land sector coordination.”


Note: Security of land tenure is an important but often-overlooked facet of sustainable development.
