Landesa

Landesa (Rural Development Institute) is an international non-governmental organization that fights poverty and provides opportunity and security for the rural people living in extreme poverty through the power of land rights. The impacts of secure land rights cut across the spectrum of global development and human rights concerns– from health to economic growth, from women’s empowerment to political stability. Landesa is one of few global organizations dedicated to promoting secure land rights as a path to social justice and gender equality. Founded in Seattle, Washington in the United States, Landesa has helped secure land rights for more than 120 million families in over 50 countries. In 2015, Landesa was awarded the Hilton Humanitarian Prize, the largest humanitarian prize in the world, in recognition of its extraordinary contributions to alleviating human suffering. Landesa currently has active projects in India, Myanmar, China, Ghana, Ethiopia, Kenya, Liberia, Tanzania, Malawi, and Mozambique. The Landesa Center for Women’s Land Rights reinforces Landesa’s commitment to gender-responsive land reforms and advocacy.
