    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.

    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

    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)
    1
    . 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 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

    Since 2004, Rwanda has embarked on an ambitious land tenure reform programme (LTR) aimed
    at increasing security of tenure to all land owners and the elimination of all forms of
    discrimination. This has largely been achieved through the establishment and implementation of
    a new legal, regulatory and institutional framework.
    This paper discusses the ongoing land tenure reform programme and its impact on women’s land
    rights. It focuses on the role of women in the decision making in the course of developing the
