In response to the increasing number of land conflicts, the Zambian Government has undertaken measures to address land conflicts, but the measures are mainly curative in nature. But a conflict sensitive land governance framework should address both curative and preventive measures.

    Those who led southern African states to independence promised to redress the inequalities of settler colonialism by returning the land to the people. A generation later the rural poor are still waiting. Many lack access and full rights to agricultural land and, as developments in Zimbabwe and South Africa show, they are getting angry. Where did post-independence land reform policy go wrong?

    FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations) and other development partners are working together with countries to prepare Voluntary Guidelines that will provide practical guidance to states, civil society, the private sector, donors and development specialists on the responsible governance of tenure. By setting out principles and internationally accepted standards for responsible practices, the Voluntary Guidelines will provide a framework and point of reference that stakeholders can use when developing their own policies and actions.

    after completion) of the pilots undertaken to fine-tune the

    While scholars agree on the importance
    of land rental markets for structural transformation in
    rural areas, evidence on the extent and nature of their
    operation, including potential obstacles to their improved
    functioning, remains limited. This study uses
    household-level data from six countries to start filling
    this gap and derive substantive as well as methodological
    lessons. The paper finds that rental markets transfer land
