Country Insights is a Land Portal initiative that aims to improve the understanding of the land governance situation in different countries to support knowledge exchange, collaboration and informed practices and policies on land. It achieves that through the online publication of peer-reviewed country briefs along with selected datasets and the latest news, blogs, events and reports related to the country in focus - forming a country portfolio. 

The Land Portal Foundation is pleased to announce the publication of thirty-five new country portfolios as part of the Country Insights Initiative, which seeks to expand knowledge about how countries govern their land, the challenges they face, and the innovative solutions they find to manage land tenure issues.

The following countries from Southern Africa are included in the new additons: 

Each country portfolio features a detailed narrative written by Land Portal Foundation researchers and peer-reviewed by leading land experts around the world. Narratives delve into the history of land governance in the country, land laws and legislation, land tenure classifications, land investments and acquisitions, women’s land rights, urban tenure issues, community land rights, the relationship with the Voluntary Guidelines on the Governance of Tenure (VGGT), and suggestions for further reading. Moreover, the narratives include a timeline of major developments in land governance over each country’s history.
