Land governance across borders or transnational land governance looks at rule making, standard setting and institution building across borders. Empirically, one can see a variety of patterns of regulatory governance emerging. The studies commissioned by IGAD in 2016 reviewing the of land governance systems in the IGAD Member States identified four transnational elements:
- State sovereignty over land.
- Legal pluralism (customary and statutory).
- Gender biases in access to land.
- Land tenure insecurity and land conflicts.
IGAD through this project with support from the Swedish Embassy seeks to improve the performance of the land administration function in the IGAD region moving these closer to convergence and enabling the implementation of cross border initiatives that have a bearing on land. This project intends to deliver the following four result:
- Enhanced Capacity Development of IGAD Region on gender responsive land administration.
- Strengthened gender mainstreaming in land administration for the IGAD Region.
- Strengthened Capacity of the IGAD Region to implement land monitoring.
- Strengthened IGAD Land Governance project coordination and Implementation.
This project focuses on documenting best practices and generating mode or prototypes on land administration and management that can be replicated or scaled up. The model/prototype generated are mainstreamed by gender and will be used as learning ground and adaptation for use by the IGAD Member States with the expectation that there will be increased systemic change in how land governance functions at Member States level.
