Assess & Enhance Land Tenure Security
Restricted and endangered access to land and resources has proven to be one of the major obstacles to the development of rural communities, which are in the centre of HEKS’ work. As a consequence of the urgent needs to secure access to land and HEKS’ longstanding experience in development work, a substantial number of HEKS projects have focused and are focussing on enhancing access to land and resources for rural communities.
