    In a country with the highest population density of all Africa, and 95% of this population dependent on land, the question of land tenure is inevitably a vital issue. In Rwanda it is becoming even more crucial as marginal lands are cultivated, and competition for land, and thus a livelihood, increases. The currently prevailing land tenure systems in Rwanda vary from one area of the country to another, reflecting both differences in traditional customary laws, and the adoption, at varying degrees in different regions, of written law in place of customary law.

    This report presents the results of a small scale household survey that was conducted in May
    2015 to assess the extent to which rural Rwandan citizens are vulnerable or resilient to
    environmental, market and land tenure risks and the level they understand the laws and rights
    related to land. The report also compares the results of the survey with those from the baseline
    survey conducted in May 2014, and seeks to inform the LAND Project of its progress in
    achieving objectives entailed in the project’s results framework, namely:

    Across equatorial and east Africa, climate change is affecting the frequency, intensity
    and variability of regional climate patterns.1 Changes in rainfall patterns, temperatures
    and storm intensity are having significant effects on national economies, regional
    infrastructure, land use and local livelihoods. These changes are forcing national and
    local governments to adjust and adapt how they plan, prepare and implement day to
    day operations today and larger visions for the future. The ability of governmental

    The aim of this policy brief is to describe current and historical conflicts over rights to land and natural resources within and surrounding protected areas in Rwanda. We examine the roots of contested claims between citizens and the State and offer some potential avenues for resolving these conflicts in ways that consider both the priorities of the Government of Rwanda and the rights of local communities that depend on protected area resources.

    Rwanda has nearly 280,000 hectares of wetlands, almost 11% of the country’s total
    area.1 These wetlands provide critical habitats for wildlife and biodiversity, maintain
    important hydrologic processes that help to clean and protect ground and surface
    water, support a variety of local livelihoods and largely define Rwanda’s idyllic
    undulating topography.
    2 Despite their ecological and economic importance, Rwanda’s
    wetlands are being degraded and lost faster than any other ecosystem, with

    Before 1999, land rights in Rwanda were governed by three regimes: customary
    (traditional) law, colonial laws still in effect, and laws enacted after independence. In each of
    these, men were privileged in ownership and control of land whereas women were excluded
    or had fewer rights.
    The 1999 Succession Law restructured and harmonized land ownership in Rwanda,
    superseding all prior legislation. A significant portion of these changes related to gender
    equality. Equal rights to umunani (umunani or ascending partition is an act accomplished by

    Between October 2014 and October 2015, Radio Ishingiro with the support of USAID
    Land Project implemented a Communications Campaign focused on influencing the
    attitudes and mindsets of men and boys about gender-equal land rights to overcome
    traditional norms and beliefs that hinder women from exercising their rights to land. In
    particular, the campaign focused on overcoming traditional beliefs and norms that
    hinder women from exercising their rights to inter vivos gifts of land (“umunani”)1

    In Africa, land has an emotional and mystical value beyond the economic consideration and
    represents the social security and the continuity and independence of a family. In much of rural
    Africa, land constitutes the primary source from which millions of people derive their daily
    livelihoods (Bhandari 2001)

    . In sub-Saharan Africa, women contribute between 60-80% of labor
    used to produce food for both household consumption and sale to agricultural production while
    women’s access to and control over land in Africa remains minimal (FAO, 1998).

    This policy research brief on land tenure reform and government revenue aims primarily to examine the effects of land tenure reforms on land-based revenue and to provide policy recommendations that would build on existing efforts developed to ease the process of paying and collecting various land revenue. The research topic was suggested by land sector stakeholders among other topics during the LAND Project’s Year 3 Work Planning Meeting, and was endorsed by the Rwanda Natural Resources Authority and LAND Project as an important research area.
