The Land Governance Assessment Framework (LGAF) is a diagnostic tool for the evaluation of the legal framework, policies and practices regarding land and land use. The LGAF is based on a comprehensive review of available conceptual and empirical material regarding experience in land governance (refer to Land Governance Assessment Framework: Conceptual Approach, Formulation and Methodology). In 1995, the Uganda government embarked on land reform starting with the Constitutional provisions. Land reform was imperative because of the country’s turbulent land tenure history. Since 1995, many policies and laws have been promulgated to streamline land governance. In addition, financial, human and infrastructure resources have been put in place to enhance the process. All these efforts are attributed to the recognition that secure land rights and effective land governance are key stimulants to social and economic development for Uganda. In a pluralistic society like Uganda, effective land governance is premised on the pillars of equity, proficiency and justice. The LGAF is introduced in Uganda at a time when the major policy reform process is coming to a close and more in-depth implementation of the reforms about to commence. This is such an appropriate moment in the history of Uganda where successes in policy and legal reforms meet real implementation challenges requiring a concerted effort of all land sector actors to pull off the reforms in practice.
