This reviews the literature on decentralised land governance in Southern Africa, highlighting key issues and challenges of ‘land governance from below’. The case studies illuminate decentralised land governance practices and outcomes, as located in the social, legislative and institutional contexts of Botswana, Madagascar and Mozambique. The book sets out to give voice to local people, land rights activists and decentralisation practitioners in Botswana, Madagascar and Mozambique and to stimulate collaborative conversations among different sets of actors in the land sector in order to reflect on the different approaches and practices of decentralised land governance in the region.
