Banding Together Against Land Grabs

Many African farmers use communal land, territory historically owned by a community rather than an individual. Because these age-old areas are not considered private property, but instead state property, these territories are vulnerable to land grabs. To protect farmer’s rights to use communal lands, the report advises that farmers organize and authenticate communal groups, as well as demarcate boundaries and register communal rights.
