 Land-at-scale Newsletter Q3 2021 - October 2021 Online Version
Rijksdienst voor Ondernemend Nederland
Dear colleagues,

October 16th marks World Food Day. Over the entire month, RVO communication channels will be dedicated to stories and experiences related to food security. Of course, LAND-at-scale’s contribution focuses on the importance of secure land tenure for food systems across the world. The linkages between land governance and food security are highlighted through country examples in Uganda, Mozambique and Rwanda. Be sure to follow our LinkedIn channel and the RVO website for these stories.

As we announced in our previous newsletter, over the summer LAND-at-scale launched several country projects. Projects in Rwanda and Uganda have officially kicked off and you can read more about these projects through the links below. Other projects that have started are Chad and Mali, of which we will share more information soon.

If you have any questions or remarks about LAND-at-scale, please do not hesitate to reach out to us through landatscale@rvo.nl.

Warm regards,

The LAND-at-scale team

A collaborative approach to achieving food security: how LAND-at-scale adds value to embassy strategies
Embassies of the Kingdom of the Netherlands are important partners for LAND-at-scale. Ideas funded through LAND-at-scale were submitted by embassies and the development of these ideas into projects was done in close collaboration with the embassies in the specific countries. LAND-at-scale often contributes to the implementation of broader embassy strategies in the specific countries. In Uganda, for example, LAND-at-scale adds a land governance-component to the embassy’s food security strategy.
