Mainstreaming Land Governance in IGAD Policies, Strategies and Programs
Analysis IGAD programmes and projects reveals that land governance has not been adequately mainstreamed within IGAD. The Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries policy makes reference to land governance however no mechanisms for its implementation are elaborated. The IGAD CAADP- Regional Agricultural Investment Plan recognizes land governance as a key constraint to achieving food security. Furthermore, the Natural resources strategy recognizes the centrality of land governance to natural resource management. These provide entry points for mainstreaming land governance in programs.
