LandNNES is the Land Network National Engagement Strategy in South Africa. LandNNES was launched by civil society stakeholders in 2018, following the establishment of a national Multi Stakeholder Platform (MSP) for People-Centred Land Governance in 2017. It operates as a consultative civil society platform which brings together members with a common medium-long term perspective to create a force that increases possibilities for People Centered Land Governance. The Network is focussed on policy level advocacy through a strategy of Connecting, Mobilising and Engaging. The strategic goal of the LandNNES South Africa is to realise equitable, inclusive and participatory land governance, effective land administration and agrarian transformation that enhance women’s rights to live on and use land.
Based in Pietermaritzburg, LandNNES is seeking to appoint a focused administrator to fulfil the positions of:

This National Engagement Strategy approach is supported by the International Land Coalition (ILC) who have assisted civil society to launch the LandNNES. The ILC is a global alliance of over 200 civil society and intergovernmental organisations working together to put people at the centre of land governance. Over the past decades, the ILC has advanced its mission by promoting secure access to land for rural people through capacity building, dialogue, and advocacy.
