The linchpin that’s missing in local economies
Ashley Toombs, BRAC
Often overlooked as a key issue in development, land ownership impacts every aspect of a person’s life including health, education, and work opportunities. Property rights set the foundation for economic and social stability – especially in fragile states. Yet their importance, role in securing human rights, and ability to drive critical economic growth are frequently overlooked. This session will explore diverse solutions to securing land rights including technological innovations, government and non-profit partnerships, and private-sector approaches. Speakers will highlight case stories and innovations from Asia and Africa that illustrate successes, failures, and the role property rights play in enabling prosperity.
