    Rwanda

    More than eleven years after the 1994 genocide, Rwanda might be an internally pacified, but by far not unified nation. There are different factors, which threaten the fragile social equilibrium. The issue of land is one of them. Land has long been a scarce and disputed resource in Rwanda. Ongoing shortages due to decreasing soil quality, growing population pressure and unequal distribution, as well as a lack of income generating alternatives beyond agriculture create an extremely precarious future to the national economy of the small, landlocked country.

    Rwanda

    Prior to the 1994 war, Rwanda had one of the best agricultural data bases on the African continent with a consistent time series on production, area, and yield data spanning the period from 1984 through 1992. This data base, drawn from annual surveys of a nationally representative random sample of approximately 1,240 farm households, was supplemented with a variety of specialized surveys conducted intermittently on topics such as input use, livestock production, natural resource management practices, non-farm income, etc.

    Rwanda

    Land is a critical resource. It is finite and irreplaceable. The role and efficiency of land use planning is therefore of considerable national importance. The issues faced by Rwanda in relation to land and land use planning are well recorded.

    In Africa, land has an emotional and mystical value beyond the economic consideration and
    represents the social security and the continuity and independence of a family. In much of rural
    Africa, land constitutes the primary source from which millions of people derive their daily
    livelihoods (Bhandari 2001)

    . In sub-Saharan Africa, women contribute between 60-80% of labor
    used to produce food for both household consumption and sale to agricultural production while
    women’s access to and control over land in Africa remains minimal (FAO, 1998).

    Africa’s Great Lakes Region has in recent years experienced
    political strife, armed conflict and population displacements
    with severe humanitarian consequences. While these events
    have clearly revolved around political struggles for the control
    of the state, recent research has pointed to the significance
    of access to renewable natural resources as structural causes
    and sustaining factors in struggles for power in the region.
    Contested rights to land and natural resources are significant,

    This report is part of a broader comparative effort by As the author worked with colleagues in Rwanda,
    two other important dimensions of the Rwandan
    experience became clear. Refugee return and land
    access in Rwanda has been an extraordinarily
    complex matter, with some refugees leaving just in
    time for others returning to take up their homes and
    lands. Rwanda has important lessons to teach us
    about the need to maintain flexibility in dealing with
    complexity, and raises questions about whether

    Rwanda

    To accommodate the needs of hundreds of thousands of returnees after war and fgenocide in 1994, the new Rwandan Government launched a settlement programme, Imidugudu. Since early 1997, this programme has targeted the entire rural population: all scattered households in the country had to be regrouped in villages. What started as a response to an emergency turned into an ambitious but controversial development programme. The programme has been implemented with support from international organizations, including UNHCR and numerous NGOs.
