An Innovative Approach to Land Management
We abuse land because we regard it as a commodity belonging to us. When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect. ---Aldo Leopold
The land belongs to the future. ---Willa Cather
The Global Land Coalition was formed by assembling a group of experts and researchers with extensive land-related experience. The Coalition's overall mission is to develop long-term solutions for effective land use in developing countries.
Its primary objective is to combine classic land use theory with local requirements to produce custom solutions for each country. The Coalition's secondary objective is to train and support a cadre of local government, community and business leaders to ensure long-term substantial change.
It is our hope that this organization will serve as an innovative way to connect our team of selected experts with key funding agencies and with leaders in developing countries that need improved land use policy, implementation, and training.
The Global Land Coalition has broad experience with land-related projects in developing countries. Our expertise is concentrated in the following key categories: Policy Reform, Institutional Reform, Legal Reform, Land Use Planning, Land Information Systems, and Environmental Conservation.
