    The land challenge is central to the broader youth dynamics of migration, employment, livelihoods and belonging. The more than 1.8 billion youth living worldwide represent not only a land challenge, but an untapped potential in moving the tenure security agenda forward. Recognizing this, the Global Land Tool Network has partnered with UN-Habitat to develop youth responsive land tools through the Youth-led Action Research on Land program. Five action research projects will be undertaken by youth organizations in Brazil, Kenya, Nepal, Yemen and Zimbabwe.

    Este libro es una secuencia de relatos de casos cargados de emotividad, empatía e identificación con los defensores y las defensoras del derecho a la tierra. Este trabajo es una denuncia política insistente sobre la desigualdad estructural.

    Ceñido a la descripción y ejemplificación de hechos graves, se puede ver en el presente un indudable patrón de respuesta del Estado y sus instituciones, sesgado a favor de los intereses de latifundistas y terratenientes y represivo hacia aquellos defensores y defensoras.

    GIZ (2019) Training manual for land governance practitioners in Teso Uganda
    Training Resources & Tools
    August, 2019
    Africa, Uganda

    The need to strengthen the capacity of CSOs, DLOs, ICU and partners working on land governance in Teso has become obvious if harmonisation of the customary and formal land management systems is to be realised. This is expected to enable a coordinated and systematic approach with one voice.

    Knowledge of policies on land governance not only improves the way issues pertaining to land rights are handled; but also minimises waste of time and money lost on land conflict.

    GIZ (2018) A guide to peaceful co existence on private Mailo land in Uganda

    Africa, Uganda

    Mailo tenure is the most legislated form of tenure in Uganda, having its origins in the 1900 Buganda Agreement. Reforms over the years have seen the evolution of this tenure that is essentially freehold in nature, albeit with its local characteristics arising out of an unresolved tenant question. This status quo was reinstated in the 1995 Constitution, the Land Act and its subsequent amendments. Whereas it is expected that reforms introduced by the Constitution and Land Act would suffice in stabilizing Mailo tenure, this has not happened in practice.

    With the current population of 40 million and 213 inhabitants per km², Uganda is one of the most densely populated countries in Africa. Yet land is a fixed asset. Of all the land in Uganda, approximately 80% of the land area is administered under customary tenure system and approximately 5% only is titled under Mailo, leasehold and freehold tenure. There is a high amount of tenure insecurity in major parts of the population, as the land legislation is not well−known among the rural smallholder farmers.

    Uganda   has  been  struggling  to  maintain   a conventional (European-type) land administration system for a long time  but has faced many  challenges   including  lack of funding, inadequate skill force and long- winded procedures. Up to present, the country has only managed to record less than 20 per cent of the land rights. Similar circumstances can be found in many countries in the world. An often-cited estimate indicates that seventy percent of the world´s population is lacking security of tenure.
