This guide seeks to promote the use of ADR mechanisms to settle land rights disputes involving occupiers, labour tenants, landowners, claimants and other key role-players. It further aims to educate and capacitate ADR facilitators to have an understanding of the legal provisions that govern the relationships between different right-holders of land, particularly on farm land. The targeted ADR facilitators include the following actors in the land sector; organized agricultural institutions, civil society and dispute resolution organizations, government officials, Land Rights Management Committees, attorneys, advocates and the Legal Practice Council, mediators, ward councilors, community leaders, magistrates and judges.

AFRA is a land rights advocacy non-governmental organisation (NGO) working since 1979 to support marginalised black rural people, with a focus on farm dwellers. We are working towards an inclusive, gender equitable society where rights are valued, realised and protected, essential services are delivered, and land tenure is secure. We work intensively with communities in and around the uMgungundlovu District Municipality in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, and extensively in offering support and advice.
