The main objective of the GLTN is to contribute to poverty alleviation and the MDGs through land reform, improved land management and security of tenure.
The Global Land Tool Network (GLTN) originates from requests made by Member States and local communities world-wide to the United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN-HABITAT) to work on issues relating to security of tenure. GLTN therefore contributes to the implementation of pro poor land policies to achieve secure land rights for all.
The Global Land Tool Network (GLTN) aims to establish a continuum of land rights, rather than just focus on individual land titling, to improve and develop pro poor land management as well as land tenure tools, to unblock existing initiatives, to assist in strengthening existing land networks, to improve global coordination on land, to assist in the development of gendered tools which are affordable and useful to the grassroots and improve the general dissemination of knowledge about how to implement security of tenure.
People living in rural and urban areas without secure land tenure.
