This proposal builds on the successful Cities Alliance-funded “Support to the National Program for Land Tenure Regularization and Socio-Environmental Risk Prevention in Precarious Settlements” project. It encompasses the preparation and distribution of a set of instruments for the recruitment and training of local agents (city officials, representatives of social movements, district attorneys, neighborhood associations), to disseminate and scale up the sustainable land tenure regularization actions being supported by the Federal Government, which involve precarious urban settlements throughout the country.
The general objective of this project is to expand the scope and enhance the efficiency of the sustainable land tenure regularization process in the different regions of Brazil, through the production and distribution of a set of instruments for publicizing, capacity building, and mobilization actions for sustainable land tenure regularization. The outputs to be developed should contribute to training public officials and community leaders, NGO operatives, law practitioners and other local change agents in the different regions of Brazil.
1) Preparation of the graphic design for the toolkit; 2) Preparation of the handbook of land tenure regularization; 3) Virtual law library CD; 4) Reprinting of the book "Regularização Fundiária de Assentamentos Informais Urbanos" (Land tenure regularization of informal urban settlements); 5) Production of a primer on land tenure regularization; 6) Packaging and distribution of the land tenure regularization toolkit
Expected Impacts and Results
The main impact foreseen is that the distributed material will stimulate states and municipalities, as well as other entities to make land tenure regularization an important item on their political agendas, contributing to a significant growth in the number of municipalities taking actions to promote land tenure regularization, and to speed up current land tenure regularization procedures, thereby increasing the number of title deeds granted and their registration at registry offices.
