Available in: Français

WASHINGTON, November 19, 2009 - The World Bank’s Board of Executive Directors today approved the following project:


IDA Grant: US$10 million equivalent

Project ID: P115226


Project Description: Additional financing for the Community-Based Rural Land Development Project aims to increase the incomes of about 15,000 poor rural families by implementing a decentralized, community-based and voluntary approach to land reform in four pilot districts in southern Malawi. The approach to land reform piloted under the project includes (i) voluntary acquisition by communities of land sold by willing estate owners, transferred to communities by government, or donated by private individuals; (ii) on-farm development, including the establishment of shelter, and the purchase of basic inputs and necessary advisory services; and (iii) land administration, viz. the regularization, titling, and registration of beneficiaries' property rights in land.
