This scoping study on ways to improve tenure security in Burundi is commissioned by the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO). RVO is responsible for the implementation of the LAND-at-scale program, which is a program launched by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs to contribute to improved land governance around the world. In Burundi, RVO and the Dutch embassy in Burundi (EKN) intend to commission a project under the LAND-at-scale program that will build on the experiences of the land tenure registration (LTR) initiatives undertaken to date in the country.
The aim of the LAND-at-scale project in Burundi is to contribute to structural change in land governance in the country by supporting the (geographical) scaling-up of successful land tenure registration (LTR) projects undertaken in past years by Dutch NGO ZOA in the province of Makamba. These projects have put in place local land bureaus (SFC, for Services Fonciers Communaux), in view of providing the population with access to easily accessible and affordable land registration facilities.
This study conducted by the Royal Tropical Institute (KIT) provides an analysis of the main obstacles that stand in the way of improved tenure security, sustainability and protection of women’s rights and explores options to change or expand the existing LTR programming strategies to overcome these obstacles.
