In view of the importance of land to Africa’s social, political and economic development, as well as sustainable resource management, AU/NEPAD, ECA and ADB, under the leadership of the AU Commission, agreed to work jointly during 2006-2007 to develop a land policy framework and guidelines, as well as the modalities for its implementation at country, regional and continental levels. Building on past research, experiences and initiatives, the tripartite agreed on the following processes, aimed at building a consensus on a vision for, and adopting, a land policy and land reform framework in Africa: a) A consultative workshop; b) Regional consultations; c) A continental African experts meeting; d) A meeting of African Ministers responsible for land; and d) AU Heads of State and Government Summit.
