    FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations) and other development partners are working together with countries to prepare Voluntary Guidelines that will provide practical guidance to states, civil society, the private sector, donors and development specialists on the responsible governance of tenure. By setting out principles and internationally accepted standards for responsible practices, the Voluntary Guidelines will provide a framework and point of reference that stakeholders can use when developing their own policies and actions.

    Land degradation is a serious problem that crosses national borders, ecological zones and

    socio-economic levels. It can be especially devastating for the world’s poorest people living

    in dryland areas. The Land Degradation Assessment in Drylands (LADA) project, executed

    by FAO with funding from UNEP, GEF and others, assesses the causes and impacts of

    land degradation at global, national and local levels in order to detect hot spots and identify

    remedial measures. LADA approaches land degradation as a biophysical, social, economic

    The Crop Yield Simulation and Land Assessment Model for Botswana (CYSLAMB) has been developed to serve thd needs of land evaluation in a semi-arid environment. By modelling the interaction of environmental variables, physiological responses, inputs and management, CYSLAMB predicts the yield of a particular crop production system on a specified land unit. The use of actual rainfall data for individual years enables evaluation of interannual yield variability and quantification of risk in the specification of land suitability.

    This article examines the evolution of policy recommendations concerning rural land issues since the formulation of the World Bank’s “Land Reform Policy Paper” in 1975. That paper set out three guiding principles: the desirability of owner-operated family farms; the need for markets to permit land to be transferred to more productive users; and the importance of an egalitarian asset distribution.

    Conflict associated with land has increased substantially following the return of peace to the Acholi Region with the return of internally displaced people (IDP), population growth, and increases in the value of land. The area is heavily dependent on agriculture and conflict related to land access seriously threatens to undermine development and the social, political and economic stability of the Acholi Region. This study involved community members, key informants, and statutory and traditional leaders in three sub counties in each of the seven Acholi districts.

    Uganda

    Land acquisition for development projects by government, private investors and land speculators is a critical source of tensions and conflicts in many parts of Uganda. Following the discovery of commercially viable oil reserves in 2006, Uganda turned attention to extractives and oil development as a matter of national priority. Evidence of this assertion can be found in the recent 2016-17 national budget allocations, where the portion for oil development is substantial.
