The Global Land Tool Network (GLTN) and the UN-Habitat Sudan Country Programme, in close collaboration with the United Nations Country Team of Sudan, the United Nations – African Union Hybrid Operation in Darfur (UNAMID) and the Darfur Land Commission, published the ‘Darfur Land Administration Assessment: Analysis and Recommendations’ report.
The report assesses the statutory and customary land administration systems in the five Darfur states and provides guidance on how to secure land and property rights of the people voluntarily returning to Darfur and of other vulnerable groups. It determines gaps in the overall capacity and the capacities needed to address the challenges, and it identifies sets of early recommendations, strategies and priorities for action.
Furthermore, the report includes a set of short-term recommendations for concrete actions on land governance, land-use planning, land information management and dispute-resolution mechanisms, and it proposes some capacity development approaches for government, Native Land Administrations, community-based and civil society organisations, academia and land professionals.
