The Community Land Act of 2016 provides a legal basis for protection, recognition and registration of community lands and has provisions for management and administration of the land by the communities themselves.

We have a chance to change that in 2019. That’s why we’re naming this the Year of Justice.

In developing countries, it is almost impossible to determine fair values for rural land. That’s because traditional valuation approaches – like the comparable sales method – don’t work in thin markets, and don’t take into account environmental, social, and cultural value that communities place on their land.
