Reports & Research
Janvier, 2016
Asia du sud-est

government to accept and register their communal land use legally. The first step
towards this is in the development of the National Land Use Policy which is still in draft.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: "In recent years, many governments globally have formally recognized community land and natural resource tenure, either based on existing customary practices or more recently established land governance arrangements.1 These tenure arrangements have been called by a variety of names, such as community, customary, communal, collective, indigenous, ancestral, or native land rights recognition.

The Status of Customary Land and the Future of Smallholder Farmers Under the Current Land Administration System in Zambia

Reports & Research
Septembre, 2015

The past decade has ushered in an era of increasingly contentious land politics in Zambia, with investors, the government, and chiefs simultaneously blamed for injustices in land allocation. These conflicts over land have been exacerbated, and at times caused by the lack of transparency and available data on the status of land. While a variety of actors has real grievances with the security and efficiency of the current system of land allocation, smallholder farmers bear the brunt of the risk of continuing the status quo in land policy.
