Terra Firma and the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO) are pleased to announce the launch of a new LAND-at-scale project: Scaling Community Land Rights Certification in Municipal Areas of Mozambique. The project started implementation this month (February 2024) in the rural hinterlands of four municipalities in Manica, Sofala and Zambezia provinces.
During the Conference for Land Policy in Africa (CLPA) which took place in Addis Ababa in November 2023, LAND-at-scale organised the side-event ''Climate-Resilient Land Use Planning as a Tool for Addressing Land Degradation''. The LAND-at-scale (LAS) project partners and their government constituencies from Mozambique, Rwanda and Uganda participated in person. The set-up of the session was dynamic with each country first ‘pitching’ how land use planning processes were important in their LAS interventions, and then the government representatives adding to that a perspective from government. In each of the countries, the LAS partners consisting of NGOs and UN organizations, work closely with national or district land use planning officers of the government in carrying out project activities.
As part of a scoping study titled Land Governance for Climate Resilience: A review and case studies from LAND-at-scale projects headed by Richard Sliuzas, Emeritus Professor, University of Twente, CTV explored the links between climate and land governance in the LAND-at-scale project “Scaling Community Legal Literacy, Land Rights Certification and Climate Resilience in Mozambique”. This case study focusses on experiences from the Búzi District, where Cyclone Idai (March 2019) showed the need for proactive interventions in the land sector aimed at preparing districts and local communities to face and plan for severe climatic phenomena and their impacts, but also the challenges at making this link explicit.

En la jornada inaugural de la #COP28, organizamos un seminario web titulado "Aumentando la Resiliencia Climática mediante una Gobernanza de la Tierra Inclusiva", en el que se profundizó en el papel crucial que desempeña una gobernanza de la tierra inclusiva en el aumento de la resiliencia climática.
Le jour de l'ouverture de la #COP28, nous avons organisé un webinaire, " Renforcer la résilience climatique par une gouvernance foncière inclusive ", qui a approfondi le rôle crucial que joue la gouvernance foncière inclusive dans le renforcement de la résilience climatique.
No dia de abertura da #COP28, organizamos um webinário, "Building Climate Resilience through Inclusive Land Governance" (Criando resiliência climática por meio da governança inclusiva da terra), que se aprofundou no papel crucial que a governança inclusiva desempenha na criação da resiliência climática.
On the opening day of #COP28, we hosted a webinar, “Building Climate Resilience through Inclusive Land Governance,” that delved into the crucial role which inclusive land governance plays in building climate resilience.
Scaling is at the heart of both the name as well as the strategy of LAND-at-scale. Scaling and scaling potential are key in the way the program was designed and is reflected in the three pillars chosen to realize the aim of the program. The first pillar is about scaling successful initiatives and projects; the second pillar focuses on land governance innovations with scaling potential; and the third pillar covers knowledge management, with a focus on gaining a deeper understanding on the conditions required to make scaling successful.
Communities in developing countries are increasingly exposed to the effects of climate change. Although they contribute little to greenhouse gas emissions, many communities are at the forefront of climate change and the associated extreme events. They are faced with events that undermine their food security, such as droughts and floods, but also increased pressure on land due to climate-induced migration. In this session, we delved into the nexus of climate change and land governance.
Capacity building for joint adaptation and mitigation at community level
Climate change is a fact in Mozambique given the geographical location of this country which places it in a position of vulnerability. The most recorded effects in communities are prolonged drought, floods, strong winds and cyclones jeopardizing livelihoods due to low production and productivity.
