    Sub-Saharan Africa, Rwanda

    Land laws provide a legal basis for addressing a country’s land-related strategies and are the central land policy instruments through which governments realise land policy objectives. Considering their vital role, it is imperative that land laws be evaluated to ensure that policy objectives are followed and that the laws are not ineffective or counterproductive.

    land tenure. The Practical Guide presents a unique approach to simultaneously addressing land
    use and tenure security challenges at the country level. The information and processes presented

    Au Burkina Faso, les agricultrices, majoritaires parmi les femmes, doivent se contenter de sols souvent dégradés, de superficies réduites. Les retours de migrants les exposent à des expropriations qui compromettent leurs activités agricoles et menacent l’alimentation familiale. La solution pour s’en sortir : négocier.

    The Cameroonian government’s decision to reform the land legal framework is an opportunity to provide real protection for rural land tenure rights, in a context where major investments and projects are increasing tenure insecurity across the country. Responding to an invitation from the administration to help design this new framework, civil society stakeholders have issued multiple proposals over the years on the topics they think should be included in the new land law. The LandCam project has documented, analysed and consolidated these proposals.

    L'exploitation minière industrielle au Burkina Faso

    Reports & Research
    December, 2018
    Burkina Faso

    Le nouveau report de GLOCON examine l'impact de l'exploitation minière industrielle au Burkina Faso sur la population locale ; il présente la perspective des résident·e·s de six mines industrielles. Des enquêtes dans les villages riverains montrent que, au contraire qu’aux promesses faites par les sociétés et les autorités étatiques, les conditions de vie ne se sont pas améliorées. Par contre, les répondant·e·s rapportent la perte de leurs moyens de subsistance et des problèmes de santé, ainsi qu’un comportement irrespectueux de la part des sociétés minières.
