Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 1998
Human Rights Development Centre (HRDC)
This description of Hanif Mahmoud's work was prepared when Hanif Mahmoud was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 1998.
Responding to the pressures of the worlds most densely populated country Hanif Mahmood is working towards making Bangladesh's land recording systems more accountable, transparent and accessible to the public. The methodology he has developed enables citizens, particularly the poor, to defend their land rights thereby ensuring their economic livelihood in Bangladesh's largely agrarian society.
