OECD provides practical guidance to mining, oil and gas enterprises in addressing the challenges related to stakeholder engagement.
This research paper investigates how a common conservation intervention (protected areas), has varying impacts depending on the underlying property rights and the profitability of forests.
"The general objective of this paper is to explore the nexus between land distribution and economic development. The specific objectives are to: (i) identify which land distribution programs/activities contribute to economic development; (ii) investigate the role of stakeholders in land distribution programs that affect the growth of productivity; and (iii) assess the deficiencies of current land distribution policies in Asia, Africa, and Latin America to explore how economic development theories contribute to decreasing income inequality. "

This toolkit from USAID "addresses activities and projects that USAID staff may design to strengthen and secure land tenure, property rights and land governance in rural, peri-urban and urban areas. The Toolkit is one of several gender-based violence (GBV) Toolkits that USAID has developed to address concerns related to GBV in other sectors including, but not limited to, Economic Growth, Energy and Infrastructure, Monitoring and Evaluation and the Rule of Law."
"Taking off from previous initiatives of the Land Watch Asia Campaign, this book discusses key issues in access to land and tenurial security for small farmers, rural women, indigenous peoples and other rural sectors in eight Asian countries. It also analyses the mechanisms needed for responsible land governance and the resolution of growing land conflicts."
Tool One; Job Description, provides sample criteria for Community Based Facilitators (CBFs) who will work with women, groups, and communities. It is important that these CBFs be selected carefully. This sample job description outlines the core duties of CBFs in order to hire the best candidates.
Tool Two, a two-part self assessment, should form the basis for training and supporting Community Based Facilitators (CBFs). It assesses each CBF's work experience, experience with the communities, and understanding of gender and social dynamics regarding land and resources in the community.
Tool Three, Sample Logic Framework, is linked to the Sample Baseline Survey and Assessment (Tool Four), and provides sample outcomes and indicators to measure women's land tenure security. The framework should be amended based on context and should be developed after initial qualitative research on land and resource security for women.
Tool Four, Sample Baseline Survey and Assessment, forms part of a robust Monitoring and Evaluation plan, and should be conducted with both project participants and a control group. Questions should be tailored to the particular project context.
Tool Five is a guide to conducting a needs assessment to form the basis for curriculum development and engagement. This example focuses on understanding the land and resource tenure situation and women’s experiences of tenure.
Tool Seven is a template for group meeting minutes, which should be kept by the groups themselves where feasible and should be recorded by CBFs. This template also includes guidance for using journals for ongoing monitoring and evaluation.
Tool Nine -Action Points for Groups includes group work to identify problems and aspirations, ask for confirmation, amendment, or addition, and identify action points is next. Two samples of action points and a blank table are part of this tool.
