The Thomson Reuters Foundation, the charity arm of the world’s largest news and information provider, announced today the renewal of a three-year funding commitment from Omidyar Network for PLACE, the innovative news platform dedicated to coverage of the under-reported issue of land and property rights launched in 2016.

“The global conversation around land and property rights has deepened in an important way, thanks in large part to the captivating stories of often overlooked individuals and communities highlighted by PLACE over the last few years,” said Peter Rabley, venture partner at Omidyar Network. “By continuing to support PLACE, we hope a wider range of policymakers, innovators, funders and others will understand the intrinsic role that secure property rights play in advancing many other issue areas, such as water rights, sustainable cities, climate change, and digital personal data protection, so that together we can better advocate for systemic change.”
