This report assesses the legislation of Sudan relating to land tenure and administration (see the list in the Annex to this report) against the provisions of the Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure of Land, Fisheries and Forests in the Context of National Food Security (the VGGT). The assessment is structured along a set of indicators from the VGGT that were considered most relevant for the legal framework on governance of land tenure in Sudan. These indicators are grouped under the VGGT's guiding principles: (1) to recognize and respect all tenure rights holders and their rights; (2) to protect tenure rights against threats and infringements; (3) to promote and facilitate the enjoyment of legitimate tenure rights; (4) to provide access to justice; and (5) to prevent tenure disputes, conflicts and corruption. Based on the findings of the legislative assessment, and with a view to the gaps and weaknesses identified, the report recommends amendments to the existing legislation and/or enacting new legal instruments to strengthen the governance of tenure in Sudan and to more closely align it to the guidance provided by the VGGT.
