Please provide us with an overview of the corruption and corruption risks in urban and rural land administration in Ethiopia. What are the drivers? How can donors influence in building a solid and transparent land administration?


Improving land governance is key in assuring that land resources can be enjoyed by all parts of the population. Donors can play an important role in combatting corruption in land administration and building a well-functioning land administration by both supporting domestic government efforts as well as engaging in international and multi-country initiatives. However, donors are advised by experts and civil society organisations to be mindful of the possible impact of their interventions on issues of land grabbing and forced relocations.
