Our strategy

Promote economic development for rural residents by helping them secure property rights as part of a national land reform process.

The context

Fragmented land ownership and outdated land titles contribute to financial insecurity of Bolivia's rural residents. Recent economic development efforts have focused on urban areas, contributing to rural poverty, rural-to-urban migration and low agricultural productivity. The country's 1996 agrarian reform law called for the government to regulate and update all rural land titles by October 2013.

Our work

  • Economic opportunity: Providing land rights to rural residents makes communities more resilient and promote economic development through improved agriculture and marketing.
