Securing Land Tenure for Improved Food Security in Uganda
A nine-minute video. Most rural people in Uganda have rights to their rural land through customary tenure arrangements, representing 75-80% of land holdings: but only 15-20% of the land is formally registered. Often women, especially widows, experience land grabbing, arbitrary eviction and poor access to justice. GLTN and others are working to help vulnerable smallholder farmers in South Western and Elgon regions through the implementation of a ‘Securing Land Tenure for Improved Food Security in select areas in Uganda’ project. The video illustrates some of this work.
