LAND-at-scale Uganda- Scaling up community-based land registration and land use planning in order to contribute to increasing food security in Uganda
09/21 - 09/25
Uganda wants to transform from a predominantly low-income agricultural economy to a modern and prosperous country in 2040. Land is widely recognized as a pivotal element of Uganda’s economic and social transformation, as evidenced by the government ambition to improve tenure security and systematically title all land by 2040. For this purpose, a modern legal framework for land governance has been created. Until now, implementation of the existing law and policy to improve tenure security of customary land in a way that both accessible (low cost), context sensitive and flexible is limited, however.
The project aims to contribute to the development of a structured and scalable approach towards improved tenure security and sustainable land use for men, women and youth on customary land, which is obtained using fit-for-purpose and participatory tools and approaches. The project aims to put inclusive, climate smart and sustainable land use planning into practice, combined with improving tenure security.
- Capacity building for customary leaders and communities, to apply a fit-for-purpose and participatory approach
- Scaling up: prepare and implement a registration of customary land in the four project regions
- Harnessing land: climate smart land use planning at subcounty level, including wetland use management
- Learning and communicating: developing Standard Operational Procedures to be used for scaling up this approach in other regions
