    Rwanda

    In Rwanda, two factors make land a highly important and contested issue. First,
    Rwanda has the highest person-to-land ratio in Africa. This creates tremendous
    pressure on land in a country where most of the population lives in rural areas, and
    where agriculture remains the central economic activity. Second, Rwanda is recovering
    from massive population shifts caused by decades of ethnic strife and the 1994 civil war
    and genocide, which resulted in displaced populations and overlapping land claims.

    Rwanda

    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

    This brief discusses a pilot intervention in Rwanda led by the Belgian
    NGO, RCN Justice & Démocratie, with support from the International
    Development Law Organization (IDLO) and the Belgian Government. A
    more detailed and complete discussion of the pilot is given in Lankhorst
    and Veldman (2011a). The pilot aimed to transform the customary
    resolution of disputes involving women’s land claims concerning
    inheritance or marital relations. The intervention examined whether
    and to what extent it was possible to increase the scope for acceptance

    Rwanda

    In Rwanda, for many years ago, rights over land for women and female orphans were not
    recognized. The main causes were the inexistence of efficient land administration systems and
    the prevalence of traditional system of land tenure which were complex and did not favor
    women and female descendants. In 2004, the Government of Rwanda had adopted a new land
    policy which was complemented by the 2005 Organic Land Law and a series of laws and
    regulations with regard to access to land, land management perspectives, and to the modalities

    Tanzania

    Beginning in the mid-1970s through to the 1980s, Tanzania experienced a severe socio-economic crisis. In an attempt to turn things around the abating economy and accelerate economic growth, the government embarked on a broad range of radical policy, legislation, and institution reforms, which opened doors for foreign direct investments (FDIs) and further initiatives have been taken to create an enabling environment for investments to flourish in the country.

    Tanzania

    Objections to assessed compensation for expropriated land in Tanzania have been on increase irrespective of the changed ideologies of the country. The basis of valuation assessment as provided in the laws governing land acquisition is ‘market value’ while the local valuation practice has had limited use of the basis in compensation and resettlement assignments.

    Etiopía

    Large scale land acquisition is a buzzword of the day in the world, more so in Ethiopia. The issue is indeed polarizing, in one hand it is dubbed as land grab and seen as ultimate scramble for land. On the other hand, it is often depicted as key to development, technology transfer and boost in productivity of an otherwise idle land available in Ethiopian lowlands, or somewhere else.
