Margaret A. Rugadya (Associates for Development)
Reviews key gender issues that need addressing re IDP return and the resumption of livelihoods in the recovery of post-conflict Northern Uganda. Reveals the inadequacies in policy and law in addressing gender and land issues. Re-establishing an enduring property rights regime in land requires addressing: (a) securing the essential ingredients of security and certainty of property rights; (b) identifying potential conflicts and addressing them at their latent stage; and (c) establishing a robust and dynamic institutional arrangement that handles land and biodiversity related transactions in a transparent and accountable manner.
