Traditional authorities in Zambia complain that the government does not consult them when land is allocated for investment projects, while communities say chiefs are neglecting their interests. Jesinta Kunda of Zambia Land Alliance says more clarity is needed on the role of traditional authorities, in law and practice, to ensure large-scale investments in agriculture, mining and other sectors are governed better – particularly in light of the rising demand for critical minerals found in Zambia. She urges the government, traditional leaders and citizens to seize the opportunities presented by current legal reforms in Zambia to create change.

La tierra es un recurso finito, y el acceso a ella es esencial para la subsistencia de las personas y las comunidades.

La terre est une ressource limitée, et son accès est essentiel pour les moyens de subsistance des individus et des communautés. Pour que l'accès à la terre soit sûr et équitable pour tous, les Nations unies ont fixé l'objectif de développement durable (ODD) 1.4.2, qui mesure la sécurité tenure foncière des individus, et l'ODD 5.a.1, qui mesure la sécurité tenure sur les terres agricoles dans une perspective de genre.

Just like many African countries, a majority of Zambian tribes follow a matrilineal system, that is, an affinity system in which descent is derived through maternal instead of paternal lines which essentially means children are recognised by the names or family of their mothers. This does not only affect decent but also involves the inheritance of titles and property including land through the female line. One might ask why women have less access and control of land in Zambia when land and property is inherited through maternal lines.
