NELGA Knowledge Exchange on Land Governance in Africa I Focus- Southern Africa

South Africa’s land governance is an outcome of diverse processes that include but are not limited to land administration.  A focus on land administration’s history, ongoing research and initiatives to improve land administration reveal how the country experiences the challenges and outcomes of attempts to resolve the problems.

The webinar will provide an overview of the challenges of  South Africa’s dysfunctional land administration system, which is marred by a deep dualism that leaves an estimated 60% of South Africans without de facto institutional support for informal and customary rights in land and also highlight insights gained from ongoing attempts to  address the challenges

The webinar will touch on the following subjects:

1. The colonial origins of South Africa’s dualistic land administration system and the practical consequences.

2. A case study of hybrid land management institutions that have evolved in response to experienced dysfunction, highlighting both the opportunities and the risks involved.

3.  Findings from a pilot project exploring the scope for reform of dysfunctional systems through processes of social dialogue and institutional learning.

You are invited to a Zoom meeting.
