To improve investment, rural growth and secure women’s rights by providing financial support to the Rwanda government to issue registered title to every landholder, and establish systems for maintenance of those titles. This will benefit 80% of private landowners and see 10.3 million plots of land demarcated and digitised (5.8 million attributable to DFID), 8.4 million leases prepared (4.7 million attributable to DFID) of which 8 million is distributed to land owners by June 2015 (4.5 million attributed to DFID); 30 Districts Land Bureaux will also be refurbished and equipped (17 attributable to DFID) with all District Land Officers trained in Land Administration (17 attributable to DFID). Formal land transactions are expected to increase to 3% of registered titles (250,000 per annum, 140,000 attributable to DFID) and fees collected per annum (estimated ~£5m) by June 2015. This contributes towards our corporate target to help secure rights to land and property for over 6 million people
