Target audience/ users

The guide explains what compulsory acquisition and compensation are, and what constitutes good
practice in this area, examining the consequences of poor legislation, procedures and
implementation. These guidelines are intended to support land tenure and land administration
offcials, valuers and civil society partners who are involved where policies, legal frameworks and
capacities are being developed, and where compulsory acquisitions are being implemented. They
do not seek to be exhaustive but rather refect what FAO and its many collaborators have discov-
ered are “good practices.”
