This book showcases new empirical findings on the conceptualization, design, and evaluation of land management interventions. It addresses two crucial aspects: how and under which conditions such interventions are responsible, and how such interventions can be supported by smart technologies. This book is for all types of actors in land management. Although primarily based on cases from Africa, the book addresses land management issues from practical and theoretical perspectives relevant for land managers worldwide. It brings the discourse up-to-date and helps all practitioners designing new policies and those looking for new instruments to do so.
Aimed at land academics, including students, teachers, and researchers, as well as practitioners, including those working within international organizations, donor organizations, NGOs, and land independent consultants.
