On November 28 Development Workshop and World Vision launched the Draft Land Management in the Central Highlands of Angola  in Kuito, Bié province. The project is the result of a recent agreement between the EU and the FAO to ensure the implementation of the Voluntary Guidelines on the Governance of Tenure (VGGT).

10 countries are involved: Angola, Burundi, Côte d’Ivoire, Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi, Niger, Somalia, South Sudan and Swaziland. This project is financed with funds from the European Union (EUR 33 million).

The 3 year project in Angola will cover 3 provinces: Huambo, Bié, and Benguela and aims to empower governments at national, provincial and municipal levels, non-state actors and local communities to facilitate the recognition of land tenure rights, forests and other resources.
