Over the last year-and-a-half, the Global Land Tool Network -GLTN's Urban CSO Cluster and Habitat for Humanity's Solid Ground Campaign convened a series of regional learning exchanges/conferences focused on building capacity around land tools and partnerships towards strengthening land tenure security for the urban poor and addressing land management and administration issues. This training event will build upon the results of these previous events, bringing the key learnings and outcomes to a global audience and global context. Participants from civil society, grassroots, government, private sectors, and academia will have the opportunity to gain a broader understanding of the continuum of land rights and learn new strategies for cross-sector engagement to support security of tenure for all. The training's objectives are: a) promote a learning platform to broaden dialogue to the global community to build sustainable partnerships and collaboration structures around land; b) deepen understanding of existing land tools and innovative initiatives; and c) leverage the network partners to identify common types of land tenure regionally and globally. The training has three parts: FIRST: A report back from regional events in Washington-DC, LAC, Africa and Asia-Pacific. SECOND: A discussion and analysis of the Continuum of Land Rights as per participants' backgrounds and experiences. This includes discussions on cross-regional and global commonalities and differences in tenure situations of the urban poor, similarities and differences in the interventions used for different populations along the continuum, as well as the rationales and incremental tenure goals. THIRD: Group work and discussion on how to develop partnerships across sectors to further incremental tenure goals for the urban poor. This includes what each sector needs from or can offer to other sectors, an evaluation of the extent to which relationships and benefits are being realized, and identification of actions and opportunities for cross-sector partnerships moving forward.
