Land governance programme to protect vulnerable communities

26 February 2015

Vulnerable communities across Africa are to be supported by a new programme on land governance aimed at promoting sustainable development and protecting legitimate tenure rights.

The launch is taking place this week in Niamey, Niger, organized by The UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and the African-led Land Policy Initiative.

Ten countries will implement new guidelines regarding land—Angola, Burundi, Côte d’Ivoire, Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi, Niger, Somalia, South Sudan and Swaziland.

Stephanie Coutrix asked FAO food security expert Ruhiza Boroto to describe what the programme will specifically address.
