Land provides the basis for the livelihoods, ways of life, culture and social identity of many people across the rural world. Land rights often raise the most difficult issues in land-based investments, for example in the agricultural, extractive and infrastructure sectors.

A wide range of materials provides governments, civil society and private sector actors with guidance on how to protect land rights in investment processes. But the large number of these tools, and sometimes their limited accessibility to a non-specialist audience, make it more difficult for those actors to apply state-of-the-art guidance that is most relevant to them.

The Responsible Land-Based Investment Navigator helps governments, civil society and businesses identify and access the guidance most relevant to their area of intervention. You can access tools and guides based on the topics they cover and/or their main intended audience, selecting the tabs in the top header. You can also use the search bar above with key words. The Navigator also offers a selection of additional resources, including general principles such as UN documents; reports and case studies providing insights into experiences with addressing land rights issues; and links to external platforms that offer complementary services to the Navigator.
