USAID LAND TENURE and PROPERTY RIGHTS PORTAL

Land Tenure and Property Rights Tools

Oct 22, 2013

The tools are intended to help USAID technical staff as well as other U.S. Government personnel and development practitioners understand:

4) Assessment and evaluation of LTPR issues and projects.

LTPR and other development professionals outside the U.S. Government are also likely to find the tools useful in their own context for the reasons listed above.

The matrix helps users identify the “universe” of possible LTPR constraints and interventions and the causal linkages between them. There are five matrix overlays that guide users through additional constraint and intervention considerations

There are two tools that offer methodologies to guide USAID mission programming:
