N`Tene Terra - For responsible land governance: Support for the implementation of the land law in Guinea-Bissau
Oct 2015 - Aug 2021
The application of the land law comes up against four main internal difficulties: a) the non-existence of the enforcement bodies provided for by the law, b) the inadequate demarcation of the territories, c) the implementation of the land tax and the ) the “coupling” between customary institutions and the state. Finally, the fragility and ignorance of customary law as well as the structural vulnerability of local communities contribute to the weakness of land governance in Guinea Bissau where the land issue has been characterized by the absence of governance since independence.
