Founded in 2014, Global Land Alliance is a not-for profit organization that strives to achieve land tenure security around the globe. GLA works with communities, organizations, and governments to improve land tenure security through inclusive dialogue and practice, and promotes sustainable land and natural resource use with all stakeholders.
GLA seeks positive disruption of status quo situations which perpetuate tenure insecurity and poverty, the misuse of resources, and the suppression of local initiatives. GLA works with a wide array of groups to promote local consensus and action, manage knowledge, drive accountability, and develop long-term capacities in service of socially inclusive and ecologically-grounded development.
Omidyar Network is supporting Global Land Alliance to work with Terra Nova in Brazil to improve its ability to mediate between land owners and favela occupants and to develop its historical data for research purposes.
