The transformative potential of the Post-2015 development agenda/SDGs will depend on the extent to which they are able to address the structural factors that entrench continued poverty, human rights violations, gender inequality, exclusion, conflict, food insecurity and environmental degradation, among other issues.

 

Secure and equitable rights to land and natural resources have been flagged by many organizations as fundamental to the post-2015 agenda, and are reflected under several proposed goals in the OWG11 "zero draft." These include proposed goals on ending poverty, achieving food security, attaining gender equality, conserving and sustainably using marine resources, and conserving terrestrial ecosystems.

Land is fundamental to address urban and rural challenges and it cuts across all sectors. These include dealing with governance and legislation, city extension, densification, urban policy, housing, food security, slum upgrading and prevention, economy through land-based financing, water and sanitation, infrastructure, urban mobility and transport, planning, public space, municipal finances, employment and job creation, safety and security as well as dealing with post-conflict and post-disaster contexts, gender, youth and human rights issues. This resonates with "The Future We Want."

The Social Tenure Domain Model offers practical solutions and opportunities for land professionals, researchers, grassroots organisations and government authorities. These opportunities include the empowerment of the grassroots communities to develop and manage their own information systems (and their own data), with all the benefits of the advanced technologies can offer, with less investment in resources and with less reliance on highly paid experts. Land professionals can also make their services available to all and offer people-centred and affordable solutions. They can also contribute to the further enhancement of the STDM framework. With STDM, it is possible to bridge the information divide, to serve all members of society and to undertake development interventions such as tenure security for all at scale.

Preamble:
We, Heads of State and Government of the African Union assembled in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, during the 22nd Ordinary Session of the Assembly of the Union on 31 January 2014,


NOTE: The participatory approach that led to the elaboration of the Common African Position (CAP) on the post-2015 Development Agenda involving stakeholders at the national, regional and continental levels among the public and private sectors, parliamentarians, civil society organizations (CSOs), including women and youth associations, and academia. This approach has helped address the consultation gap in the initial preparation and formulation of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs);


RECOGNIZE: The efforts of the members of the High-Level Committee on the post-2015 Development Agenda, the coordinating role of the African Union Commission, and the technical support of the New Partnership for Africa's Development (NEPAD) Agency, the African Development Bank (AfDB), the Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA), the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) Regional Bureau for Africa, and the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) in facilitating the process;

pdf.png The Gendered Nature of Land and Property Rights in Post-Reform Rwanda HOT

(0 votes)

Download

This report is a summary of findings from an in-depth literature review and field research on the gendered nature of land rights in twenty sites in Rwanda (including sites located in the following districts: Rwamagana, Kirehe, Nyaruguru, Muhanga, Karongi, Rubavu, and Gasabo). It fills an important gap in evidence of women’s differential access to and control over land and other productive assets, the kinds of conflicts they experience over those resources, and the ways they attempt to resolve those conflict s. This information is intended to enable the Rwandan Government, INGOs, CSOs, donors and the private sector to develop and adopt policies, procedures and laws that protect women’s rights to property, minimize land-related conflicts, and reduce rural Rwandan’s dependence on scarce natural resources.
This research was undertaken by the Rwanda LAND Project, and was supported by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).

Land in the Owg11: Tenure Security or Assets?


The report of the 11th Session of the Open working Group (OWG) for the sustainable Development goals dated 2nd June 2014 reveals a shift in language away from tenure security to assets. This has grave implications to poverty eradication, economic growth, food security and gender equality.


The key GLII messages as agreed at the various expert meetings April 2013 Washington, November 2013 the Hague and March 2014 Washington are that any target on land should respond to:

 

  • Men and women
  • The continuum of land rights or intermediary rights
  • Recognize perception in the definition of its indicators


The table below presents the language as proposed by the OWG11 and gives the suggested language by GLII that would result in the realization of the SDG goals.

Nearly 500 million Africans currently live in slums. Urban operations are one of the main tools for improving living conditions in informal settlements, where land tenure, housing, development and services largely function outside any offi cial system. While progress has undoubtedly been made over the last decade, these operations have had mixed social, economic, urban and environmental impacts.

Crosscutting analysis of four experiences in Mauritania, Morocco, Rwanda and Senegal is used to highlight some of the problems associated with the design, implementation and monitoring of operations to improve or restructure informal settlements. Particular attention is paid to social assistance, which is an aspect of these initiatives that tends to be ignored.

This paper was written for the designers, decisionmakers and agencies involved in these operations, to help them ask relevant questions, understand the issues that they raise and thus deliver better services. In short, its objective is to contribute to more inclusive urban policies and practices and greater progress in building cities for all types of resident in every kind of neighbourhood.
