    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.

In the worst cases, where fragility has given way to open violence - people are more than twice as likely to be malnourished, more than three times as likely to be unable to send their children to school, twice as likely to see their children die before age five, and more than twice as likely to lack clean water. 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).

    The Central America region is a small market. The region contains around 43 million inhabitants (0.6 percent of total world population) who generate around 0.25 percent of the world's Gross Domestic Product (GDP). While the region has successfully embarked on a regional integration agenda and has strong commercial links with the US, extra-regional trade-mainly with large fast-growing emerging economies-remains a challenge.

Compared to neighboring countries, it is still lacking in its basic infrastructure and its administrative and technical skills. In addition, with the onset of the War in Yugoslavia in 1992 most investment and normal maintenance came to a standstill.
