Welcome to The Zimbabwe Land and Agrarian Network

The Zimbabwe Land and Agrarian Network (ZiLAN) aims to improve the participation of CSOs in lobbying and advocating for land and agrarian policies in favor of small producers, most of whom are women. ZiLAN brings different land NGOs under a formalized Network to “speak” with a unified strong voice on land and agrarian policy issues in Zimbabwe, as well as share information, contacts and experiences. This pertains to the weak position of small producers in the new agrarian markets and land tenure security of different categories of landholders especially the vulnerable groups such as women and farm workers. The network deploys evidence based research to support policy advocacy and lobbying in the agrarian sector. Members of the network have also benefitted from support through training initiatives that have enhanced their capacities.

The network brings together several local civil society organisations working in the land and agrarian sector with different expertise and resources for a coordinated land policy analysis and advocacy interventions from non-state actors. The amplification of voices and solidarity has been extended beyond local to regional connections with organizations engaged in similar struggles in Mozambique, Botswana, Namibia and South Africa. Such connections have proved to be both transformational (expanding spaces for participation) as well as developmental (through the exchange of experiences and approaches contributing to enhanced capacities among network members
