Interview with Prof. Félix Ngana of the University of Bangui: Promoting training of Central Africans in land governance for poverty reduction


In this interview, Prof. Felix Ngana talks about the recent creation of the Training and Research Unit (UFR) on Land Governance and Local Development (GFDL) at the University of Bangui in the Central African Republic (CAR). Following the establishment of a Bachelor's degree program, plans to extend this training to the Master's and PhD levels are already underway. These efforts are timely, as the country has embarked on a decentralization process to elect mayors and governors to head municipal and regional councils, respectively.

Entretien avec Prof. Félix Ngana de l’Université de Bangui : Promouvoir la formation des Centrafricains en gouvernance foncière pour la réduction de la pauvreté

Dans cet entretien, Prof. Félix Ngana nous parle de la récente création de l’Unité de Formation et de Recherche (UFR) sur la Gouvernance Foncière et le Développement Local (GFDL) à l’Université de Bangui en République centrafricaine (RCA). À la suite de la mise en place d’un programme de Licence 3, des projets pour prolonger cette formation aux niveaux master et doctorat sont déjà en cours. Ces efforts arrivent à point nommé, alors que le pays s’est engagé dans un processus de décentralisation pour élire des maires et des gouverneurs, respectivement à la tête de conseils municipaux et régionaux.

Forests around the world play a major role in curbing or contributing to climate change. Standing, healthy forests sequester more atmospheric carbon than they emit and act as a carbon sink; degraded and deforested areas release stored carbon and are a carbon source.

This Is Our Land: Why Reject the Privatisation of Customary Land
20 juillet 2021


Most of the world’s land is still stewarded by communities under customary systems. Billions of people rely on communally managed farmland, pasture, forests and savannahs for their livelihoods. 

This collective management of resources is viewed in the colonial or capitalist economic model as an obstacle to individual wealth creation and private profit.

To secure equal rights to land, bring men and women together

There is an underlying tension in the land rights movement that is rarely addressed head on, which is the perception that securing women’s land rights threatens community land rights. Community land rights are typically held by indigenous people, small-scale and subsistence farmers, pastoralists, herders and many other groups who are directly dependent on land for their livelihoods but whose land tenure is often the most precarious.
