Evolving Land Rights, Policy and Tenure in Africa

Camilla Toulmin, Julian Quan Editors

Book/Report, 336 pages

This book presents and discusses several key aspects of Africa’s ongoing land policy debate including legislative reform, the management of land rights, issues of implementation, and policy-making processes. It provides examples of how different countries have approached the highly political and sensitive subject of rights to land and other natural resources. Recent innovative land reform programmes are described, and the authors assess the progress made toward more equitable land policies and highlight the challenges for the future. It will be of interest to those in government with responsibility for land matters, development practitioners, donors, scholars and students.
