New Partnership to Address Investment in Land in Tanzania
Stakeholders in Tanzania’s land sector launch project to develop guidance for more socially responsible investment practices
A new project aimed at ensuring investments in land and commodity procurement through supply chains are beneficial to local communities is launching in Tanzania today. The Responsible Investments in Property and Land (RIPL) project will develop country-specific, practical guidance tailored for use by investors, governments, and civil society organizations to equip each actor to engage in more gender sensitive and socially responsible investments. These guidebooks will outline internationally recognized standards and principles, such as the African Union Guiding Principles, and take into consideration the national governance framework and local context of Tanzania with the goal of improving investment practices so all stakeholders can share more equitably in the benefits of land-based investments.
