Land Governance concerns the rules, processes and structures through which decisions are made about access and ownership issues to land and its use, the manner in which the decisions are implemented and enforced, the way that competing interests in land are managed, administered and registered.
Land Governance encompasses statutory, customary and religious institutions, as well as informal institutions. It includes state structures such as land agencies, courts and ministries and Local Governments institutions responsible for land. It also includes informal land developers and traditional bodies. It covers the legal and policy framework for land, as well as traditional practices governing land transactions, inheritance and dispute resolution. Land Governance is fundamentally about power and the political economy of land.
