About The Zimbabwe Land and Agrarian Network
The Zimbabwe Land and Agrarian Network (ZiLAN) was established in 2012. In coming together, the members seek to strengthen their respective capacities, complement each other and amplify their collective voices to influence land and agrarian policies and programmes in Zimbabwe. The Membership of the Network comprises organisations involved in research and policy analysis; NGOs working with farmers; farmers’ representative organisations; women and youth in agriculture, interest groups, and land reform and agriculture activists. The members have had informal ties since 2006. Currently the membership of the network is at 27.
The members of the Network are driven by a shared concern about equity, and social justice in access to land, its utilization and the sharing of benefits arising from productive activity. They value the Network for a variety of reasons including: the utilitarian (access to information, services, skills, critical mass for advocacy), ideological (solidarity with smallholder farmers and farm workers, unified voice for civil society organisations) and pragmatic (visibility of issues; sharing experiences; common lobby platform; among others). In addition to its external focus, a large percentage of the Network’s activity is devoted to learning about each other’s skills, sharing knowledge, coaching each other and developing innovation in products and strategies.
