This report, based on primary and secondary data, highlights the link between land and inequality in Uganda.  It underscores the need to review policies, laws and regulations governing institutions and practices in the realm of land ownership, access, use and management, and to allocate enough resources to secure land rights. The report looks at factors that have had an impact on poverty and vulnerability, and how policies, laws, regulations and cultural practices can be made more inclusive. It analyses trends in land ownership, access, security of tenure and use, what drives those trends and how they contribute to inequality; reviews the impact of land use and security on vulnerable groups such as women and youth; and provides policy proposals to address inequality arising from land ownership, access and use.
