LAND POLICY REPORT: Policy Trends and Emerging Opportunities for Strengthening Community Land Rights in Africa

AFSA’s new study on Land Rights in Africa identifies the drivers of the land use changes that have displaced millions of rural people and continue to threaten millions more – particularly women; it unpacks the key land policy guidelines and why they have so far failed to ‘stick’ on the ground, and it sets out 14 actions to get to grips with the problem and push forward community land rights across Africa.

The report is the first in a series of three AFSA continental policy studies, focusing on Land Rights, Agroecology, and Seed Sovereignty. These reports were published with the financial support of Bread for the World, The Tudor Trust, The Swift Foundation and the 11th Hour Project.
