Challenges for providing tenure security in communal areas

SARPN-WBI-IERI Land Administration in Africa WorkshopSearching for Land Tenure Security22 – 25 May 2006

Challenges for providing tenure security in communal areas


Points for discussion

Points for Discussion

  • The state of political consensus among stakeholders on legislation and the programmes, and where it is inadequate how it may be improved

  • The likelihood that the legislation and programs will reach their stated objectives in terms of tenure security, community and beneficiary empowerment, gender equality, environmental management, and conflict resolution and conflict prevention.

  • Any suggestions you may have on how weaknesses which have become apparent as a consequence of experience could be remedied.


Stakeholder consensus

The political consensus is at best fragmented

These are complex issues that are not going to deliver political consensus – broad range of ‘stakeholders’ make consensus difficult. Need to build consensus at different levels (national down to community).

One grouping – LRC and PLAAS have lodged a constitutional challenge to the CLRA.

Others are waiting to see the Regulations and implementation plan.

Stakeholder Consensus


Likelihood that clra will reach objectives

“To provide for legal security of tenure by transferring communal land to communities or by awarding comparable redress…”

Not necessarily a bad theoretical framework but will not work without empowering people to exercise rights or without adequate resources.

Likelihood that CLRA Will Reach Objectives


Likelihood that clra will reach objectives1

It is possible to learn from mistakes made in implementing other tenure legislation especially the ESTA, LTA, the CPA Act and IPILRA.

DLA has failed to provide adequate support to communal property associations – not even consensus within the DLA about the level of responsibility.

A diagnostic study of CPIs in 2004 found that the primary cause of dysfunctionality was due to failure of implementation processes.

Clear that legislation cannot succeed without the adequate resources.

Likelihood that CLRA Will Reach Objectives


How can apparent weakness be remedied

No reliable data regarding the state of play in communal

Should engage in proper empirical research to determine the reality of the state of play in order to have a clear understanding of what is working and what is not.

Engage in proper consultation with stakeholders to develop implementable solutions.

Develop programme to empower communities to exercise their tenure rights and to understand their land administration responsibilities.

How can apparent weakness be remedied?


How can apparent weakness be remedied1

Process for resolving disputes must be put into place. Court process will not deliver solutions

Adequate resources must be put into implementing the Act.

How can apparent weakness be remedied?
