Agropastoral Value Chains Project in the Governorate of Médenine (PRODEFIL)

General

The project aims to improve the living conditions for 15,040 vulnerable rural households in the governorate of Medenine and to create new opportunities for employment by strengthening the resilience of agro-pastoral production systems. To that end, the project seeks to help public and private actors manage and develop local agro-pastoral value chains, including those for camelids and small ruminants. On land and natural resource governance, the project intends to strengthen rangeland management organizations, mostly through the capacity building of Agricultural Development Groups (GDAs).

Irrigation and Water Resources Management Project/Land Tenure Security Activity

General

The Land Tenure Security Activity is part of the Irrigation and Water Resource Management Project. It provide support to identify and secure land rights, including existing rights and those of farmers benefiting from the project, and to mitigate conflicts that might arise from ambiguities regarding property rights, increasing land values, and increased demand for land. The project will assist in the development of community-based land allocation procedures to assure community participation and equitable allocation of land in the project area. The capacity of local institutions responsible for allocating and managing land rights will also be strengthened.

Agriculture Project/Land Access and Management Activity

The Land Access and Management Activity has two sub-activities: Community-based Rangeland and Livestock Management (CBRLM), focusing on promoting sustainable land management and grazing activities; and Communal Land Support (CLS), aimed at improving tenure security and land governance. The primary objectives of CLS are: (1) to empower residents and landholders at the village/local level to actively and effectively participate in the use and management of their land resources in Namibia's Northern Communal Areas; and (2) to improve the administration and management of communal lands.

Green Prosperity Project/Participatory Land Use Planning Activity

General

The compact’s $332.5 million Green Prosperity Project is designed to increase productivity and reduce reliance on fossil fuels by expanding renewable energy, and to increase productivity and reduce land-based greenhouse gas emissions by improving land use practices and management of natural resources. The Green Prosperity Project includes a $43.1 million Participatory Land Use Planning (PLUP) activity to support participatory land use planning - administrative boundary setting, updating/integration of land use inventories and enhancing of spatial plans at the district and provincial level to support investment in renewable energy and sustainable management of natural resources. In general, the PLUP Activty is designed to: (i) put in place the foundational spatial (land use) planning elements needed to enable and sustain the specific investments in renewal energy and natural resource management funded by the GP Investment Facility; (ii) improve land use certainty for communities within the districts selected for GP investments; and (iii) support compliance with environmental and social performance standards and safeguards. Specifically, the PLUP is expected to: (i) enhance the technical capacity of provincial and district governments in spatial (land use) analysis, planning and enforcement; (ii) identify and, when possible, reduce land use and land tenure disputes as a means to improve the investment climate for renewal energy and natural resource management projects; and (iii) empower communities by providing spatial (locational) certainty through participatory geo-location and demarcation of village boundaries and the mapping of critical natural and cultural resource areas within these villages. Compact funding will finance the completion of the following technical activities. 1) Participatory village boundary setting and community mapping (VBS/CM), including: (i) the development of district level guidelines for participatory setting of village boundaries using established Government processes combined with international best practices, modern survey and mapping technology and including participation of the community, in particular women and disadvantaged groups; (ii) the participatory determination, geographic delineation and physical demarcation of village boundaries in targeted sub-districts (kecamatan) of selected districts; (iii) identification and resolution, as possible, of land use and tenure disputes; and (iv) the collection of geo-spatial data and mapping of critical natural and cultural resource areas within the mapped villages. 2) Creation of sub-district (kecamatan) level land use inventories and integration of land and other natural resource information, including: (i) compilation of and georeferencing of existing and pending licenses and permits for land and natural resource use, other use rights, community claims, and select biophysical data and creation of sub-district level land use inventories; (ii) technical assistance to relevant provincial and district government agencies to support integration, management and exchange of geo-spatial data and to make land information widely available to the public . 3) Capacity building for spatial planning and resource management at the provincial and district government level enhancement of district spatial plans, including: (i) investments in computer and mapping equipment, GIS software, training and technical assistance for provincial and district Bappeda offices and the office of the Bupati, to improve spatial analysis and the use, updating and enforcement of spatial plans; and improve effectiveness and transparency in licensing, permitting and decisions on land use.

Land Tenure Services Project

General

The objective of the Land Tenure Services Project is to establish more efficient and secure access to land by improving the policy framework, upgrading land information systems and services, helping beneficiaries meet immediate needs for registered land rights, and supporting better access to land for investment. This project comprises three mutually reinforcing activity areas: •Policy Monitoring Pillar: Improve the policy environment by addressing implementation problems with the existing land law, conducting regulatory reviews to improve upon it, and supporting training for predictable, speedy resolution of disputes; •Capacity Building Pillar: Build the institutional capacity to implement policies and to provide quality public land-related services by investing in human and information resources; and •Site-specific Pillar: Facilitate access to land by helping individuals and businesses with clear information on land rights and access and with registering their grants-of-land use.

Land Management for Investment Project
