Partners

Partnership Philosophy

The creation of partnerships around issues of common interest – such as good land governance and tenure security – is a crucial element to achieve long-lasting change at the society level, as it aligns priorities and actions of a large number of individuals and organisations.

The Arab Land Initiative’s partnership philosophy builds on the theory of change of the Global Land Tool Network. Capacity development is at the heart of the Initiative approach, as it enables partners to have a stronger impact, a better outreach and more successful outcomes. 

Empowered land governance champions can influence power dynamics, facilitate national discussions, support coalition development on key topics and engage with policy makers and international partners. This positively contributes to social and economic development in urban, peri-urban and rural areas, fostering peace and stability, increasing resilience to climate change and mitigation of its impact.
