    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

    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:

    This paper reports the findings of an in-depth case study of a highly densely populated area in the Northwest of Rwanda
    which has been conducted during the period 1988-1993. It
    demonstrates that acute competition for land in a context
    characterized by too slow expansion of non-agricultural income
    opportunities has resulted in increasingly unequal land distribution
    and rapid processes of land dispossession through both operation
    of the (illegal) land market and evolution of indigenous tenure

    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.

    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.

    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

    Over the last decade, the Government of Rwanda (GoR) has engaged in reforming the land sector through formulation and enactment of an enabling legal framework, establishment of land administration institutions, and land tenure regularization. In 2008, the GoR initiated the Land Tenure Regularization Program (LTRP) with two main objectives: (1) to ensure secure forms of land tenure for citizens and (2) to ensure efficient management and administration of land.

    This paper contains a preliminary summary of key issues and findings from a desk review of
    the literature on land titling projects and programmes in urban and peri-urban areas of
    developing countries. It draws on a large number of documents, not all of which have been
    incorporated into the review at the time of writing. The present bibliography will be
    expanded in the final text of the review which is to be completed by early December 2006.
