The need to strengthen the capacity of CSOs, DLOs, ICU and partners working on land governance in Teso has become obvious if harmonisation of the customary and formal land management systems is to be realised. This is expected to enable a coordinated and systematic approach with one voice.

Knowledge of policies on land governance not only improves the way issues pertaining to land rights are handled; but also minimises waste of time and money lost on land conflict.

This Training Manual is a practical handbook to be used by trainers on land governance in Teso. It contains several methods and approaches for content delivery carefully crafted to improve understanding and appreciation of the laws governing customary tenure in Teso while taking into account the dual governance system.

The Manual is divided into six chapters which are deliberately corresponding with the Customary Land Governance Guide (CLGG). It is hoped that the use of this manual will bolster Trainers’ efforts to provide quality training to the respective recipients of knowledge and information in this regard.

With the content addressing the interaction between formal legislation, customary practices and rules governing customary tenure; hopefully this manual will increase absorption and appreciation of the law and customs on governance of customary land in Teso.
