The Political Economy of Land Governance in Africa 2021

06 – 10 September | ONLINE SHORT COURSE

Across Africa, the majority of both rural and urban residents have insecure tenure rights, either in law or in practice. They face the legacy of land dispossession, colonial legal codes, contested customary tenure systems, and growing pressure on land in the face of commercial investments. How can land rights and land governance in Africa be strengthened? To address these challenges requires building a highly-skilled cohort of land professionals and land policy makers. This short course will equip these leaders to resolve the land, natural resources and gender challenges facing the continent.

This short course is hosted by the Institute for Poverty, Land and Agrarian Studies (PLAAS), University of the Western Cape (UWC), in collaboration with the African Land Policy Centre (ALPC). It is an accredited course of the University of Western Cape. PLAAS is a special node of the Network of Excellence on Land Governance in Africa (NELGA) to strengthen African expertise on land governance. We have trained 95 land professionals across the African continent. The training is conceptualised to deal with specificities of land administration on the African continent.
