Pillars of the Community: How Trained Volunteers Defend Land Rights in Tanzania

By: Godfrey Massay

Training volunteers to help their communities defend their land rights has proved an effective approach for promoting land justice in Tanzania.

This report documents the work of a network of ‘Land Rights Monitors’ (LRMs) established and trained by Hakiardhi, a Dar-es-Salaam-based research institute working on land governance issues. Hakiardhi has trained a 600-strong network of male and female LRMs operating in 300 villages on various aspects of the land law.
