Organisation website:
Landesa works to secure land rights for the world's poorest people. In brief "We recognize that a majority of the world's poorest 2.5 billion share two traits:

They live in rural areas, where land is a key asset since agriculture is the main source of income and food
They don't own the land they till

Landlessness is one of the best predictors of extreme poverty.

We believe structural problems deserve structural solutions. Without secure land rights, many important global development investments – education initiatives, micro-finance, global health work – lack sustainability and are more difficult to scale.

Landesa partners with developing countries to design and implement pro-poor land laws, policies, and programs that:

Reduce poverty for individual families
Promote economic growth for communities and countries
Improve nutrition and health
Encourage women's empowerment
Reduce and prevent violent conflict
Foster environmental stewardship."
