Clarifying and strengthening rights to agricultural land is critical to livelihoods around the world. Land tenure underlies resilient food systems, supply chain transparency, women’s empowerment, and sustainable resource management. There are an estimated 570 million farms worldwide, the majority of which are smallholder and family farms lacking secure land rights.
