Rapid population growth, an influx of large scale land-based investments and the subsequent increase in land conflicts have made land use planning and titling increasingly important. However, the cost of undertaking the process of land titling is, in general, prohibitively high. This briefing paper summarizes findings from a research report on mechanisms for leveraging cost in rural land tilting as practiced by stakeholders in Tanzania. Leverage, in the context of the study, is defined as a range of measures employed by stakeholders to cut costs and share the burden.
