Land Governance Assessment Framework

Increased global demand for land because of higher and more volatile food prices, urbanization, and use of land for environmental services implies an increased need for well-designed land policies at the country level to ensure security of long-held rights, to facilitate land access, and to deal with externalities.  Establishing the infrastructure necessary to proactively deal with these challenges can require large amounts of resources.  Yet with land tenure deeply rooted in any country‚Äôs history, a wide continuum of land rights, and vast differences in the level of socioeconomic development, the benefits to be expected and the challenges faced will vary across and even within countries, implying a need to adapt the nature and sequencing of reforms to country circumstances.

This report was written nearly one year ago, a few weeks before a conflict erupted in Juba on 15 December 2013 and spread throughout much of the Upper Nile region.  In the early days of the conflict, publishing a report about land governance hardly seemed like a priority.  But a closer examination would have shown that a number of long-standing problems, including tensions overland, were among the factors that set the stage for the conflict.  Since obtaining regional autonomy in 2005, the Government of South Sudan has struggled to establish functional land governance systems.  Instances of land grabbing by political and military elites and dysfunctional land administration processes have been sources of frustration for many years.
