Nigeria HLP Mapping
The following fact sheet and research memo have been developed to provide quick and key information of the legal and procedural context relating to Housing, Land and Property ("HLP") within the target country. They are intended to inform programming and emergency responses, especially those involving shelter interventions. A rapid understanding of the tenure landscape in each country context can assist in delivering stronger and more equitable responses. However these documents are not intended to be legal advice.
The HLP mapping project has been undertaken by the international law firm Webber Wentzel for the International Organization for Migration (IOM), using templates developed by the Australian Red Cross and the International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC). All of the research has gone through a verification process with in-country lawyers and/or country experts.
