Registration for USAID’s Land Tenure and Property Rights Massive Open Online Course is open through March 2017. Enroll today!
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. You do not need to have completed last year’s course to take this one – it includes both a sufficient introduction to LTPR for first-time participants as well as new study tracks for returning participants who would like to dive deeper into the environment; humanitarian assistance; and reducing poverty & hunger aspects of LTPR.
