Youth

Young people– especially in rural areas – will have to live with the consequences of our land use decisions, but are often excluded from decision-making processes. We are committed to encouraging them to step into their power and challenge the status quo in their land rights struggles.

Initiatives established

In sub-Saharan Africa, fewer than 1 in 10 young people own a plot of land.

One in three adults owns land in the same region. The breakdown of youth with land rights is grimmer when accounting for gender. While women own less than 15% of the world's land, young women are less than half as likely as young men to own land by themselves.

The fight for youth land rights is complicated by the fact that rural youth -- and especially women – are often excluded from institutions that provide access to financial services, denying them credit, savings, and insurance.

Especially in rural areas, skill development opportunities, education, or resources such as land are scarcely accessible.

Supporting youth to make their voices heard can bring about lasting, long-term change. We work to empower and harness the potential of youth to lead a transformation towards people-centred land governance, equipping them with the skills and knowledge necessary to be the leaders of tomorrow.
