A guide to customary land formalization: making the law work for the people

This how-to guide is designed for civil society organizations, independent practitioners, and community-based organizations in Liberia who are interested in learning how to support or facilitate a community to complete the formalization process for customary land ownership. It is also for development professionals interested in developing new capacity in the area of customary land formalization. The guide introduces users to the concept of land rights and Liberia’s land tenure reform, and provides practical tips and best practices that facilitators can draw on. It is designed for both low-literate and literate participants, using a mix of participatory or popular education methodologies, and may be adapted for delivery in an undergraduate academic setting.
