Center for Land Governance

Land as a discipline in academics and in policy and development discourses, has remained comparatively under-developed. Land administration continues to be isolated and sectorally divided, over-bureaucratized and often-politicized. Contrary to the need, land governance portrays legal complexity and institutionall inadequacy and exclusiveness.

Contested landscapes of land governance in India calls for partnerships and innovations to make development more inclusive and prosperity shared. Participation of land-actors and users, especially communities, civil society and private sector are critical, to make land governance equitable and sustainable. 

Centre for Land Governance attempts to bridge information gaps, create evidence and build platforms for connection and conversations amomg land-stakeholders, through knowledge engagements around action and policy research, evidence-based advocacy, communication and capacity building
