Demystifying 'Tenure' for Humanitarian Practitioners
The purpose of this guidance document is to:
Clarify the concept of ‘Tenure’, which is essential to a large proportion of NRC’s programming, but remains somewhat misunderstood.
Demonstrate how tenure is a way for humanitarian actors to analyse, understand and engage with relationships within conflict-affected communities.
Provide teams with tools and best practices to improve the sustainability of interventions and to prevent conflicts.
Establish an outline for future training.
The primary audience of this note are NRC staff who implement (CC or thematic assistants, officers, team leaders, or coordinators) or supervise projects (Area Managers, CC/Thematic Specialists and Managers) that rely on the use of buildings, land, property, or natural resources.
The secondary audience include those who are responsible for communicating NRC’s work to external audiences (Heads of Programmes, Country Directors, IPAs, Grants Managers, Advocacy staff, NRC’s Senior Management Group).
