The USAID Short Course on Best Practices for Land Tenure and Natural Resource Governance in Africa was held on October 8-11, 2012 in Monrovia, Liberia. The course hosted approximately 35 decision makers from Africa and USG foreign assistance practitioners interested in strengthening their knowledge and skills in applying land tenure and property rights (LTPR) in their economic, governance and natural resource (biodiversity) portfolios. The course provided participants with the opportunity to:
- Exchange experiences, deepen discussion and strengthen understanding of land tenure and property rights issues, and their application to government and USAID programming;
- Study land tenure and property rights approaches, best practices and tools aimed at improving programmatic interventions on critical issues in the region related to natural resources, agriculture and economic growth, and governance and conflict; and
- Learn tools to address land tenure and property rights issues, or use land tenure and property rights interventions to strengthen economic development, governance, conflict mitigation and natural resource management objectives.
