Best Practices are successful initiatives that have a demonstrable and tangible impact on improving people's quality of life. They are also the result of effective partnerships between the public, private and civil sectors of society and are socially, culturally, economically and environmentally sustainable.
Best Practices are a means of improving public policy based on what works. At the same time they raise awareness of decision-makers at all levels and of the public, of potential solutions to common social, economic and environmental problems. Bests Practices are also a means of sharing and transferring knowledge, expertise and experiences through networking and peer-to-peer learning. The Global Campaign for Secure Tenure is looking to achieve safer ground for the urban poor to leverage a future, through the implementation at local level of a set of universally recognized principles. The Handbook below seeks to help all stakeholders actively involved in the Campaign by providing information needed in their efforts to implement national strategies.

on Security of Tenure and Access to Land identifies recent innovations
at the global level in the field of land management and pinpoints
land tenure trends. It shows how governments, including local
government and other stakeholders, are coming to grips with
implementing the land related principles enshrined in the Habitat
Agenda at a practical level in the cities and towns. The work
can help to assess at the global level the tools, methods and
approaches that exist for the implementation of the Global Campaign
for Secure Tenure, and to identify the gaps, blockages and problems
that still need to be addressed.
