The Ethiopia Land Administration to Nurture Development (LAND) project works at the national and regional levels of government to further improve the legal and regulatory framework related to land tenure and property rights and thereby support the Government of Ethiopia's and USAID's goal of increasing economic growth, particularly agricultural sector growth, improving rural resiliency, and improving governance. LAND uses a variety of activities to strengthen capacity of land administration and land use institutions. In addition, LAND supports activities focusing on securing rights to community lands, strengthening capacity of community members to manage their natural resource assets.

The LAND project builds on two previous USAID/Ethiopia projects - Ethiopia Strengthening Land Tenure and Administration Program (ELTAP) (2005-2008) and the Ethiopia Land Administration Program (ELAP) (2008-2012) - to improve land governance and land administration and strengthen land tenure rights in Ethiopia and thereby promote economic growth, increase agricultural productivity, reduce conflict and resource degradation and improve women’s rights to control and manage assets.
