Africa’s economic performance is promising, with booming cities supporting growing middle classes and creating sizable consumer markets. But despite significant overall growth, not all of Africa performs well. The continent continues to suffer under very rapid urban growth accompanied by massive urban poverty and many other social problems.

    Lesotho

    Lesotho regularly features in the African and international media as a country blighted by drought, hunger and food insecurity. Much of the discussion about the causes and remedies for food insecurity, including within Lesotho itself, focuses on the rural population and the precipitous decline in domestic food production in recent decades. This report argues that the rural bias of both donors and government ignores the fact that poverty and food insecurity are increasingly important urban issues as well.

    Lesotho

    This paper draws on research on the enforcement of the Land Act of 1979 in Lesotho. It seeks to show that illegal settlements occur under the shadow of formal state rules, from which social actors borrow selectively and in opportunistic ways to acquire urban property rights. This is possible because of inconsistencies and contradictions in state rules and enforcement methods.

    Chad, Africa

    As in many of the States of Equatorial-Africa, Chad's system of public

    and private land tenure is based on the French decree of 28 March 1699 and on the subsequent modifying texts. This system has not been very successful and Africans have proudly clung on to their respective "concessions", because they enjoyed a material hold over the land (habitation, farming, grazing, fishing m -certain water courses), until i960 and beyond.
