Geoff was commissioned by the Commonwealth Secretariat to prepare a report on access to land and tenure security in urban areas of Commonwealth countries. The paper was distributed to ministers responsible for human settlement throughout the Commonwealth and Geoff presented a summary at the ministerial meeting held on 12 April at UN-HABITAT in Nairobi during the meetings of the UN-HABITAT Governing Council. The Commonwealth Secretariat has kindly agreed to make the paper available free of charge. To download a copy, please click here.

As Geoff started his career thanks to a Commonwealth universities scholarship to India 40 years ago, this latest piece of work has brought him full circle and was an opportunity to repay some of the investment which the Commonwealth made!
