Land Use Titles (DUATs)

Bringing more transparency and clarity into the process of acquiring secure leasehold access to land via Land Use and Benefit Rights or Direito de Uso e Aproveimento de Terra (DUAT) will lead to increased transactions of leaseholds and eventually to a more market-oriented allocation of land rights. The more efficient allocation of land rights, accompanied by increased investment, will lead to greater productivity and thus economic growth.
