June 2021
UN Habitat

Presents a framework for tackling urban-rural land challenges. Designed to help a range of stakeholders in developing countries understand how to adopt an inclusive approach to land management and administration initiatives to produce a balance in urban and rural development. Provides structured guidance for addressing land-specific problems within the intersection of urban and rural development. Presents action-oriented steps and recommendations that should be pursued in urban-rural interdependent development. Hopes the publication will inspire additional policy debate on securing land tenure on an urban-rural continuum rather than viewing these areas in isolation.
