    Africa, Rwanda

    Although increased global demand for
    land has led to renewed interest in African land tenure, few
    models to address these issues quickly and at the required
    scale have been identified or evaluated. The case of
    Rwanda's nation-wide and relatively low-cost land
    tenure regularization program is thus of great interest.

    million people that has just emerged from conflict and still

    economic disparities, political exclusion and deprivation in
    the distribution of political and economic power between the
    northern and southern parts of then united Sudan were often

    center of the prolonged civil war was the struggle for
