    Western Africa

    In West Africa, land questions are rising in importance. As pressures on resources increase, farmers need sufficient tenure security to encourage production and investment in land. The procedures governing access to and control over land are of vital importance in promoting intensification and commercialisation of agriculture, combating poverty, and reducing risks of conflict. At the same time, the process of decentralisation and establishment of new local government structures raise the question of which institutions should be responsible for land management.

    This paper discusses the role of FAO support to the Government of Mozambiques Land Commission since 1995, through three consecutive projects. While each has had a relatively short duration, all have been planned and implemented within a single conceptual framework with a much longer time horizon. This has allowed a difficult and complex issue to be progressively developed and nurtured within a realistic time scale, while building up a strong sense of national ownership of the process.

    Binnen het programma Meervoudig Duurzaam Landgebruik is een gebiedsanalyse uitgevoerd, vooral gezien vanuit de betrokkenen zelf (agrariërs, agribusiness, recreatiesector, natuurbescherming, bewoners en andere betrokkenen). Met behulp van gegevens uit het Ruimtelijk Economisch Model (REM) en de CBS-Landbouwtellingen zijn de ontwikkelingen in het studiegebied geanalyseerd en vergeleken met de ontwikkelingen elders. Om de sterke en zwakke punten, kansen en bedreigingen in beeld te krijgen, zijn vervolgens interviews en discussiebijeenkomsten gehouden.
