This Regulation, made under the Afar National Regional State Rural Land Use and Administration Proclamation, concerns equal land use rights on communal holdings of the pastoralist communities and separation of communal holdings for use of the pastoralist community. Any pastoralist shall be entitled to equal land use right on communal holding. Such right shall include the right to equal distribution of grazing, water, land lease, forestry resources and any other proceeds from the communal holding. Any male or female person who is a member of a given community and is above 18 years of age shall have the right to obtain proportionate share of proceeds from grazing or lease on the communal holding of land. Land holdings for use of grazing purposes of the pastoralist shall be identified and delineated. Without prejudice to the traditional practice where the pastoralist is allowed to use the delineated plot of private holdings in their movement in search of grazing and water, it is prohibited to take hold of new possessions or expand possessions and Kebele administration shall ensure prevention of such expansion. Any person who transfers communal holding to private holding shall face criminal prosecution by law.
