World Bank assesses land-related projects in Central America

Central America – The International Land Coalition (ILC) in collaboration with the World Bank has released a report, titled “Reflections on 20 Years of Land-Related Development Projects in Central America: 10 things you might not expect, and future directions”, which provides a critical assessment of the past and future of land policy reform projects in Central America.

The report notes that, while property rights interventions have been largely effective for urban residence, they have not resulted in meeting poverty reduction goals for poor landholders. It highlights, however, achievements in the development of land information systems and the potential they hold for multi-purpose land management. The report calls for future projects to better integrate disaster risk reduction (DRR), poverty reduction and climate change considerations into their work while using spatial data more effectively.
