Governance of Tenure

Journal Homepage Image

The Land Tenure Journal is a peer-reviewed, open-access flagship journal of the Climate, Energy and Tenure Division (NRC) of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO). The Land Tenure Journal, launched in early 2010, is a successor to the Land Reform, Land Settlement and Cooperatives, which was published between 1964 and 2009.

The Land Tenure Journal is a medium for the dissemination of quality information and diversified views on land and natural resources tenure. It aims to be a leading publication in the areas of land tenure, land policy and land reform.

The prime beneficiaries of the journal are land administrators and professionals although it also allows room for relevant academic contributions and theoretical analyses.

We are currently looking for good quality articles exploring new perspectives; bringing in regional experiences and best practices; and proposing ways forward to meet challenges that the land tenure sector is facing.


No 1 (2014): Thematic issue on land tenure and disaster risk management


Cover Page

This thematic issue on land tenure and disaster risk management (DRM) stems from the recent work done at FAO on normative aspects of land tenure governance that address natural disasters through the DRM framework. In particular, it reflects work undertaken by FAO in partnership with Commission 7, Cadastre and Land Management, of the International Federation of Surveyors (FIG).
