    This paper focuses on legal and institutional aspects of children’s property and inheritance rights in Southern and East Africa. Chapter 2 discusses violations of children’s property and inheritance rights and discusses how the spread of HIV/AIDS has contributed to the violations. Chapter 3 assesses several norms of customary law that aim to protect children’s property and inheritance rights as well as the current practices of customary law that—in the context of the HIV/AIDS pandemic—serve to complicate and limit children’s ability to maintain their rights.

    The CGIAR Challenge Program on Water and Food (CPWF) is a multi-institutional research for development program

    that seeks to create and disseminate international public goods to improve the productivity of water in river basins in

    ways that are pro-poor, gender equitable and environmentally sustainable. In doing so, CPWF contributes to efforts by

    the global community to ensure that global diversions of water to agriculture are maintained at the level of the year

    2000.

    The CGIAR Challenge Program on Water and Food (CPWF) brings together scientists, development

    specialists, and communities, in nine river basins across Africa, Asia and Latin America, to address

    challenges of water scarcity, food security and poverty.

    Some CPWF projects seek to develop innovative technologies, new institutional arrangements, or

    improved policies. Other projects strategically aim to better define issues and challenges,

    understand processes and principles, and develop more appropriate research tools and methods.

    reform, the CPWF was intended to foster cross-CGIAR cooperation and find ways to bring in new partners. Over time the CPWF has successfully broadened the CGIAR’s sources of

    innovative research on water and food. Through its broad partnerships, the program conducts research that leads to positive impact on the poor and to policy change. The CPWF does this by

    The breadth and scope of the CGIAR Challenge Program on Water and Food’s (CPWF) mandate is substantial. This research strategy attempts to define this mandate by reviewing and refining its objectives and principles, and by clearly defining the path that will be followed to achieve its goals.

    In addition, the strategy outlines the kinds of outputs expected.

    This Strategy will serve as an overall research guide for CPWF participants from 2005 to 2008
