A time for change? Comments on Chad’s draft Land Code

This report provides comments on Chad’s draft Land Code (January 2014 version). It draws on a review of the draft Code in light of international trends and the Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure of Land, Fisheries and Forests in the Context of National Food Security.

Comments and recommendations cover the overall structure of land ownership, management and administration systems, the protection of customary rights, safeguards in compulsory land acquisition, the rights of pastoralists, gender, land-based investments and dispute resolution.

The report was commissioned by Tearfund as part of a longer-term programme of work implemented by Tearfund with partners in Chad.
