COLARP’s mission is to develop as an organization capable of helping the poor and the landless to improve their life situation by engaging in research and policy analysis.
COLARP's goal is to bring research and policy actors and practitioners together to promote evidence-based policy debate that will help the poor, landless and near-landless people gain access to and control over productive resources, including land. The vision of COLARP is to see a society without poverty where every person enjoys a dignified life by furthering equitable access to and control over resources.
COLARP’s objectives are to contribute to addressing land-related issues by systematically engaging the consortium in research, development and consultancy services; to promote informed policy debate on land issues; to help the government in the formulation and implementation of relevant policies and their effective implementation; and to develop COLARP as an independent ’think tank’ on land resources.
Its constituencies include the government, non-governmental organizations, international non-governmental organizations, policy makers, landless people, etc.
