    Leasing agricultural land 2004
    Also available in:

    This guide on Leasing agricultural land is designed to provide information on leasing arrangements in a format that can be used by grassroots organizations that work with small farmers and others in rural communities. Fair and secure leasing arrangements that balance the interests of the tenant and the land owner can lead to improvements in access to land for farming, better agricultural production and improved access to food. At the core of most land-leasing arrangements are three issues s hared by tenant and land owner alike: risk, security and trust. The success of the land owner-tenant relationship depends on the level of trust that can be established between them. A proper agreement can lay the groundwork for such trust, through flexibility for the land owner and security for the tenant. In this way, many potential problems or disputes can be avoided. The guide provides information for tenants and land owners who are interested in benefiting from having a clear leasing agreeme nt. It supports the preparation of mutually beneficial lease contracts by identifying key features that make such contracts effective for both the owner and the tenant.

    Access to rural land and land administration after violent conflicts 2005
    Also available in:

    This guide on Access to rural land and land administration after violent conflicts has been prepared to assist land tenure and land administration specialists who are involved with the reconstruction of systems of land tenure and land administration in countries that are emerging from violent conflict. Providing secure access to land is particularly complex in such situations. Violent conflicts typically result in the displacement of much of the population. At the end of the conflict, people ret urning home may find that others occupy their property. There may be several competing, legitimate claims to the same land as a result of successive waves of displacement. Many people may not be able to recover their lands and have to settle elsewhere. At the same time, weak capacity in central and local levels of government may hamper the process of resolving claims to land, and especially claims of the vulnerable which almost invariably include women and children, and may also include ethnic o r political minorities. The guide provides advice on specific issues that should be considered by land tenure and land administration specialists when working in post-conflict situations. It provides an overview of the conditions that typically exist in a country after a violent conflict, and shows why it is important to resolve issues of access to land and land administration. The guide identifies key aspects that should be analysed during initial assessments, and gives examples of short-t erm actions that may be implemented relatively quickly. It presents policy considerations for the restitution of land to rightful claimants and the resettlement of people who are landless or who cannot return to their homes.
