Housing Finance in Kampala, Uganda  To Borrow or Not to Borrow

Housing is an important part of development processes and typically requires long-term finance.  Without long-term financial instruments, it is difficult for households to smooth income over time by investing in housing.  However, in developing countries the use of long-term loans is limited, particularly among the middle-class and lower income individuals.  Most people in developing countries build their houses incrementally over time without long-term loans.  The limited use of long-term loans is generally seen as a symptom of market failures and policy distortions.

Human Rights Implications of Extractive Industry Activities in Uganda

Natural resource exploitation and extraction is a fast-growing industry in resource-rich Africa, with adverse results for communities living in or around project affected areas.  Activities carried out by various actors involved in natural resource exploitation and extraction – including government entities and private companies; have led to complex violations and abuses affecting an array of human rights, the environment, and social and economic development, with long-term and sometimes irreversible effects on people living in and around project-affected areas.

Investing in Land for Water  The converging legal regimes

Access to water is ultimately what makes farmland attractive to foreign investors.  The large-scale commercial farming that typically characterizes foreign investment in agriculture implies the need for vast amounts of water for crop irrigation or livestock production.  Yet, with all the focus on “land grabbing” and food security, the related water issues tend to become an afterthought.  Indeed, water is taken for granted until the supply is strained or completely depleted.

Labour Market Effects of Large Scale Agricultural Investment  Conceptual Considerations and Estimated Employment Effects

Large-scale agricultural investments (LSAIs) in general and their socio-economic implications in particular have been heavily debated in recent years.  While some claim that LSAIs are an important catalyst for development in neglected rural areas, others caution that they pose a risk to rural communities’ livelihoods.  The extent to which LSAIs provide benefits for local communities is hence still contested.  This paper sets out to conceptually understand what effects the establishment of a large-scale farm has on the rural labor market in low- and middle-income countries.

Land for Private Investors and Economic Development, Uganda

Private investors need land to conduct their business.  Little, if any, land in Uganda, however, is vacant, idle and unclaimed.  As a result, many companies experience difficulties securing land for their operations.  To facilitate investment, the government is helping companies secure land.  In recent years, the government has sought to allocate land in forest reserves and other protected areas for economic development purposes.  The following module examines the law and practice of allocating land in the protected estate for private investment.

Land Markets in Uganda  Incidence, Impact and Evolution over Time

Although there is broad agreement that well functioning land rental markets will play an important role to increase productivity and household welfare as agrarian economies develop, evidence from Africa on the actual performance and impact of such markets is limited.  We use data from Uganda to test for differences in the performance of rental, as compared to sales markets and their evolution over time, based on a framework where markets are affected by differences in ability and imperfections in rural labor and capital markets.  We find that land markets are very active, that land rental but not sales markets transfer land to more efficientand relatively poor producers thereby providing an opportunity for the landless to access land, and that rental market activity has increased recently with economic growth.  Despite land prices in some regions being above the net present value of land we find no evidence for sales markets leading to land concentration and conclude that, rather than imposing administrative restrictions, government should aim to improve access to alternative savings instruments.

Imagine a women named Flora Alanyo. She lives in a shed at the outskirts of Gulu town in Acholiland in Northern Uganda, with her four children, 10, 12, 13 and 15.  Flora used to live in the village of Lakang, almost 100 km to the west of Gulu, with her husband, William Okum.  During the war between the government and the LRA rebels, they had to flee twice, until, in 2002, the government ordered everyone to settle in so-called protected villages.  William died in 2004, at the hands of the Ugandan Army (the UPDF), when he was trying to look after his fields, in violation of a curfew.

Over the last decade, a dramatic rise in commercial agricultural investment has taken place the world over at a rate much higher than previous times.  Some of the causes that spurred this whole business happen to be mainly the food security concerns of food poor countries as in the case of the Gulf states, a shift of focus by western based investment banks, hedge funds and sovereign wealth funds towards less volatile assets such as land in the aftermath of the 2007/08 global financial crises, drought induced food export restrictions by major food exporting countries such as India and Russia, only to mention some of them.

In the wake of the increasing food prices and the subsequent Global Financial Crisis (GFC), with over one billion people going hungry, Large-Scale Land Acquisitions (LSLA) have attracted considerable interests in developing countries.  The purchase or lease of land by wealthy, food-insecure nations and private investors from mostly poor, developing nations in order to produce food crops for export is gaining momentum.  In the attempt of fighting poverty, create employment and transform agricultural development, many developing countries have attracted investors with promises of making big land offers or leases for investment.

Legal Knowledge and Economic Development  The Case of Land Rights in Uganda

Mixed evidence on the impact of formal title in much of Africa is often used to question the relevance of dealing with land policy issues in this continent.  We use data from Uganda to assess the impact of a disaggregated set of rights on investment,productivity, and land values and to test the hypothesis that individuals’ lack of knowledge of the new law reduces their tenure security.  Results point towards strong and positive effects of greater tenure security and transferability.  Use of exogenous knowledge of its provisions as a proxy for the value of the land law suggests that this piece of legislation had major economic benefits that remain to be fully realized.

Management of Investment Land in Industrial Parks by Uganda Investment Authority

The Government of Uganda (GoU) established Uganda Investment Authority (UIA) to operate as a one stop facilitator for investors.  To achieve this objective, UIA has set up many initiatives that include establishing twenty two (22) industrial and business parks throughout the country, allocation of land to prospective investors, with the aim of creating jobs and adding value to locally available raw materials.

Despite UIA efforts to successfully allocate land to investors, there have been delays by investors in developing the allocated land.  It is for this reason that the Office of the Auditor General undertook a study to assess the management of investment land in industrial parks by Uganda Investment Authority.

This paper describes a new methodology to support governments and development partners that wish to mobilise private finance for climate-compatible development (CCD).  The first aim of this methodology is to fill key information gaps about incentives and investment at country level in climate-relevant sectors.  The second is to enhance understanding of the links between public support (both domestic and international) through regulatory, economic, and information instruments, and through private investment in CCD.

Mining in Uganda: A conflict sensitive analysis

The recent discovery of minerals in uganda offers a significant opportunity for the country; particularly as a way of contributing to social and economic development. This includes fulfilling Uganda’s 2040 vision and the National Development Plan II 2014/15–2019/201.  The challenge is that the mining sector will require investments in infrastructure and other technologies to be effective.  Investments must be carefully thought through and conflict-sensitive so as not to create or fuel existing tensions in the communities where mining is taking place.
