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

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.
