From forced eviction to loss of livelihood, social status, savings and even life, land corruption in Africa has serious and far-reaching consequences. Such corruption comes in many forms, and it must be understood – along with the factors that enable it – before it can be tackled.

These research findings are intended to inform policymaking and the design of targeted interventions to detect and prevent corruption over land in Liberia, Sierra Leone, Zambia and beyond. By closing legal loopholes, ensuring regulations are implemented, addressing discrimination and exclusion, and providing accessible information about land rights and processes, policymakers and development actors can ensure security of tenure and land justice for all.
