Unverified non-profit organisation

Landesa is an international nonprofit organization working to secure land rights for the world’s poorest people, those 3.4 billion chiefly rural people who live on less than $2 a day. The organization’s attorneys have helped tackle the land problem with great effect, using law and policy to confer land rights, and bringing hope and ladders out of poverty to millions of the world’s rural poor. Landesa’s professionals have worked with the governments of 40 developing countries, foreign aid agencies, and other partners to design and implement laws, policies, and programs that provide opportunity, further economic growth, and promote social justice. Landesa also strives towards securing equal land rights for women.
