Corruption Watch (CW) will participate in the webinar launch on 23 April 2024 of the new Transparency International (TI) report titled This Beautiful Land: Corruption, Discrimination and Land Rights in Sub-Saharan Africa. The webinar is hosted by the Land Portal.

Around the world, corruption denies people access to the land and resources they need to survive. Disadvantaged people and marginalised communities are particularly vulnerable to such practices. At the same time, there is ample evidence that discrimination – direct and indirect – works to deny land rights to the most marginalised communities, on grounds ranging from disability to ethnicity and from gender to religion.

In this new research, TI and the Equal Rights Trust document how corruption and discrimination intersect to undermine land rights in seven African countries. The report and webinar will explore how corruption and discrimination intersect to undermine land rights in these countries, with stories from across the continent, including South Africa.

Speakers including CW’s Melusi Ncala, acting lead coordinator for stakeholder relations and campaigns, will also look at how governments and civil society can effectively respond to the research findings, with a focus on policies and campaigns that promote accountability and information transparency in land governance.

Corruption Watch is one of eight TI-Africa chapters participating in phase two of the global watchdog’s long-running Land and Corruption in Africa project, which seeks to address land corruption risks and injustices in sub-Saharan Africa.

The launch and webinar will take place in English, French, Portuguese, and Spanish. Details:
