Who We Are

The mission of Global Land Alliance is to enable the prosperity of people and places by advancing learning and practice to achieve land tenure security and the efficient, inclusive and sustainable use of land and natural resources.

Global Land Alliance takes the traditional think tank model a step forward, not only producing new understanding and recommendations based on on-the-ground perspectives of citizens, community leaders and businesses, but also channeling those learnings toward practical implementation at scale. By scaling and speeding up resolution of land issues, we can scale up and speed up improved results in the big issues of our time: urbanization, food security, environmental sustainability and peace.

We believe that land issues—rights, obligations, values– are basic to each of these challenges. By scaling and speeding up resolution of land issues, we can scale up and speed up quality development.

2017 Annual Report

We are so busy in 2018 we almost forgot to send you our Annual Report for 2017, but there is a lot to share and we very pleased to share our 2017 Annual Report with you.

Our first three years of operation have consolidated our belief in alliances and partnering. Our focus on finding and working with regional and international partners – with a keen focus on bringing together partners with a wide range of entry points – provides the multi-perspective approach we believe is needed, and is too often lacking, to achieve the results we are seeking.


October 13, 2018:  Our partner organization Catalytic Communities has just published an excellent four-part series on community lands trusts and their potential for favelas in Rio.
