An Analysis of Transparency and Accountability in Land Sector Governance in Zimbabwe 2013

July 2014
Transparency International Zimbabwe (Manase Chiweshe, Patience Mutopo, Mary Jane Ncube, Farai Mutondoro)

Contains 6 chapters: introduction, accountability issues in urban land management, transparency and accountability in communal land management, corruption and land reform programmes, accountability issues in large scale land deals, gender, youths and land corruption. The findings show that land governance is fragmented creating opportunities for corruption in and across institutions. The multiplicity of players involved in land administration, weak legal frameworks and excessive discretionary powers given to some administrators result in a lack of transparency and integrity in the sector.
