BACKGROUND

Transparency International (TI) is the global civil society organisation leading the fight against corruption. Through more than 100 chapters worldwide and an international secretariat in Berlin, Germany, TI raises awareness of the damaging effects of corruption and works with partners in government, business and civil society to develop and implement effective measures to tackle it.

TI’s Land and Corruption Programme is guided by the vision of guaranteeing the maintenance and development of land and tenure-based prosperity for men and women of all generations equally, respecting the dimensions of stewardship and socio-cultural relationships to land, and taking into consideration the special needs and rights of ethnic minorities, for sustainable and inclusive development and growth. The Programme’s overall goal is to contribute to improved livelihoods of men and women adversely affected by corrupt practices in land administration and in land deals, through enhanced security of tenure and equitable and fair access to land and water.

The Transparency International Secretariat (TI-S) in Berlin is seeking a consultant to research and write a position paper presenting gaps in land policies, regulations and anti-corruption standards; using information gathered from desk-based and empirical research by its Land and Corruption in Africa Programme in nine different countries in sub-Sahara Africa.

OBJECTIVES

In collaboration with nine TI national chapters, the consultant will write a position paper that analyses the gaps in the national land policies, regulations and anti-corruption standards in land and corruption, and present key policy messages together with key stakeholders to target.
