The land reform policy first phase l.jpg

The land reformpolicy: First phase

  • HARDI’s experience with the National Land Reform Program Office -PNF : experimentation ofdecentralized land reform

  • SIF PLATFORM role

    • Raising awareness of local communities and Decentralized Territorial Collectivities

    • Advocacy to give an importance to the role of local authorities and local communities in the land access process

    • Offered to be a member of the PNF orientation and follow-up committee (Comité d’orientation et de suivi)

The land reformpolicy:Second phase

  • PNF’s redirecting not suitable for HARDI’s principles and values

  • The SIF has become a consultative organisation only

  • Promoting land rights and raising awareness in the communities

  • Setting up a database to monitor land policy in Madagascar


Sif platform difficulties in land policy monitoring l.jpg

SIF platformdifficultiesin land policy monitoring

  • CSOs are often used by the PNF and the government to improve their image in front of donators

  • Lack of capacity to anticipate misuses of the land reform

  • Lack of communication between SIF members

  • Recognition of the local CSOs (SIF) by the authorities requires the support of international organisations (ILC)

  • No recognition of the CSOs by decentralized services and by central services’ staff

Risks for SIF

Members of the platform not powerful enough to assure the sustainability of the platform

Intensity of the SIF’s willpower could decrease with the increase in the number member organizations

Political takeover of the SIF image or name (the government, political opponents, etc.)

Challenges

Increasing the SIF’s renown

Updating the information and database to anticipate the consequences of land pressure on the poor
