LANDfirst, as an approach to settlement development, emphasises the provision of planned secure land with basic services as a first step towards a longer-term housing and settlement upgrading process.


The secure tenure theme work focuses on the issue of how rights over land are progressively realised, by raising awareness around informal markets and by addressing tenure processes in the upgrading of informal settlements. The work drives towards greater recognition and enhancement of informal land markets.
