Capacity Building

Education: we can help inform customary landowners of the rights, obligations and restrictions associated with their land when it is transitioning from subsistence to commercial use.

Training: we work with landowner trusts and agents, as well as government lands and valuation departments, to build their capacity in representing customary landowners.  This includes specialised valuation skills, legal analysis, lease management, negotiation, and compensation issues.

Mentoring: one of the challenges faced by customary landowners in developing economies is having an independent trustworthy point of contact that they can rely on to help identify solutions to transform land conflict.  We offer  independent mentoring to help build customary landowner capacity and confidence on all land matters.
