Improvement of Land Governance in Uganda (ILGU) is a project implemented by the German International Cooperation (GIZ), seeking to increase productivity of small-scale farmers on private Mailo land in Central Uganda, co-financed by the European Union and German Government through the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).
The project is part of the “Responsible Land Policy in Uganda” project which belongs to the Global Program “Responsible Land Policy”. BMZ created the Special Initiative “One World, No Hunger”, aimed to eradicate extreme hunger and poverty. Within this Special Initiative the Global Program on Responsible Land Policy is presently implemented in eight countries contributing to the overall goal of the initiative through documenting land rights for the rural smallholder farmer households.
Land Matters II summarizes the report from the preliminary qualitative impact findings after a three-year period of project implementation. The findings are expected to support scaling-up decisions in other districts within the Central region.
