     Land 4 life Amhara

The Global Program Responsible Land Policy (GPRLP) funded by BMZ and implemented by GIZ has secured EU co-financing for the project component on Responsible Governance of Investments in Land (RGIL). The specific objective is that “access to land and benefitting from investments as central prerequisite for alleviating poverty and hunger in rural areas to improve for marginalized groups in Amhara.”
