    Seventy-five percent of the world’s poor live in rural areas and most are involved in agriculture. In the 21st century, agriculture remains fundamental to economic growth, poverty alleviation, and environmental sustainability. Increased global demand for land because of higher and more volatile food prices, urbanization, and use of land for environmental services implies an increased need for well-designed land policies at the country level to ensure security of long-held rights, to facilitate land access, and to deal with externalities.

    South Africa

    The land governance assessment framework (LGAF) is an innovative and participatory diagnostic tool that assesses the state of land governance in a country. The LGAF has optional modules for other topics such as large-scale land acquisition, forest land, and regularization of rights in urban areas. In South Africa, large-scale land acquisition was selected as an additional thematic area, as was the case in Nigeria. A framework of approximately 21 land governance indicators guides the process in these thematic areas, each divided into three or four dimensions.

It is unsurprising that not a single low-income country in these circumstances has been able to achieve even one Millennium Development Goal (World Bank 2011).
