LAND RIGHTS AND SHELTER THE DUE DILIGENCE STANDARD

This document was originally published on the official website of Shelter Cluster at: https://www.sheltercluster.org/.
This checklist aims to assist shelter actors to ensure that they respect existing rights over plots of land on which they intend to construct shelter and minimise the risk that may contribute to land disputes. It is also intended to help assisting managers and implementers of shelter programmes in field locations to identify land rights in contexts where information is difficult to obtain. This resource is part of a collection of similar handbooks, guidelines & toolkits titled "Key policies, standards and donor requirements for shelter and settlement". Collections are monitored daily and new content is added.
