Course Description

Rights to land and resources are at the center of our most pressing development issues: poverty reduction, food security, conflict, urbanization, gender equality, climate change, and resilience. Secure Land Tenure and Property Rights (LTPR) create incentives for investment, broad-based economic growth, and good stewardship of natural resources. Insecure property rights and weak land governance systems often provoke conflict and instability, which can trap communities, countries, and entire regions in a cycle of poverty.

This year’s course examines the issues, theories, evidence, and best practices around land tenure, property rights, and international development programming. This course features interactive discussions, lectures, and case studies from a wide variety of experts in the field.

Note: USAID staff need to register with USAID University to receive credit.

  • Become familiar with the historical, legal, and institutional aspects of land tenure and property rights.
  • Identify how insecure or unclear rights are related to negative development outcomes, including conflict, human rights violations, lower productivity levels, the overuse and misuse of resources, and unsustainable land-based investments.
