    EU Transversal support to country implementation - The Sudan

    The economy of Greater Darfur is heavily reliant on farming and livestock keeping, with more than 70 percent of the population relying on traditional and subsistence agriculture, the majority of whom are dependent on rain fed agriculture and pasture for both crop and livestock production. On-going conflict in Darfur leads to problems with law and order and displacement of rural farmers, and a change in migration patterns of nomadic pastoralists. Under the current state, neither the government or customary institutions, nor any other actors alone is able to bring a solution to the complex realities of land tenure governance in Darfur. The EULGP CI aims to support the Government of the Sudan in reforming its land laws to develop practical solutions to secure access to and use of cropland, livestock routes, range and pastures including the provision of adequate and practical dispute resolution mechanisms. The intervention also aims to assist state and locality level stakeholders to promote the provision for legitimate land tenure rights to conflict displaced communities including small‐scale rural farmers, pastoralists and IDPs in the Darfur region. *EULGP CI stands for European Union Land Governance Programme – Country Implementation

    Protracted displacement in Darfur has disrupted traditional agricultural based livelihood activities and eroded community capacity to withstand shocks Despite relative peace and stability in Darfur in recent years, around 1 6 million displaced people continue to live in camps and rural gatherings, according to data released by the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs Sudan in 2018 In addition, according to the 2018 Humanitarian Response Plan ( more than two million people in Darfur are food insecure The capacity of resident communities to host displaced people in the conflict affected areas, whether sedentary rural farmers or nomadic pastoralists, has been undermined In addition, low crop productivity associated with the lack of certified seeds and variable rainfall has forced many farmers to engage in shifting cultivation, encroaching on grazing routes and sites Vulnerable people among internally displaced persons ( returnees and hosting communities are increasingly vulnerable because of their reduced access to agricultural inputs and water, as well as a chronic shortage of basic services The conflict has also impacted pastoral traditional mobility and access to grazing and water resources for livestock, giving rise to resource based competition and tension between farmers and pastoralists.

    Improving tenure security for the poor in Africa: Mozambique - Country Case Study 2007

    The paper looks at land tenure in Mozambique, where ever since independence in 1975, property in land has been vested in the state, and despite the political and economic shift to a multiparty system and market economy, this underlying principle has remained in place: no land may be sold, mortgaged, or otherwise encumbered or alienated. Local traditional land management systems meanwhile have retained a robust role as the de facto land management system of Mozambique. These systems – and the rights they attribute to rural people – were formally recognized in the 1995 National Land Policy and subsequent 1997 Land Law. While the new law had to respect basic constitutional principles, the legislators also had to develop a law appropriate for a market economy. The land policy therefore seeks to protect existing rights, while also promoting private investment and, to this end, seeks to provide secure land rights for investors as an essential condition for this.
