The Land Policy Initiative (LPI) is looking for a consultant to assist in conducting an assessment study on large scale land-based investments in Africa.
The LPI was established in 2006 as a joint initiative of the African Union Commission (AUC), the Economic Commission for Africa (ECA) and the African Development Bank (AfDB). In its first phase (2006-2009) the LPI was successful in developing a Framework and Guidelines (F&G) on Land Policy in Africa, with a view to facilitating national land policy development and implementation processes. The F&G was adopted by the African ministers responsible for land in Addis Ababa in April 2009. They were further endorsed by the highest level of African governance through a Declaration on land issues and challenges in Africa.
For its second phase, the goal of LPI is to assist member states in the implementation of the declaration, in accordance with the F&G in order to achieve socio-economic development, peace and security, and environmental sustainability.
This consultancy will support the LPI secretariat in its quest to accomplish the above first objective of its strategic plan: advocate for the inclusion of land in the development agenda, strategies and programmes of the African tri-partite LPI consortium, RECs, African member states and development partners.
