This project is part of
A national workshop on harmonizing legal instruments of tenure took place in Bangui in July 2015, where 75 participants discussed the value and use of the Voluntary Guidelines in Central African Republic and identified legal actions to improve governance of tenure. The participants included representatives from academia, civil society, indigenous peoples and the private sector. A comprehensive legal review served as a base to establish principles for future legal reforms and from which to propose a framework law on tenure rights. Wide consultation with local communities and civil society was recommended as a next step towards the adoption of a framework law by government institutions. The workshop closing was chaired by the Prime Minister accompanied by seven ministers.
The workshop was organized by the Ministry of Urban Development and Housing with the technical and financial support of FAO.
