Issues related to land tenure are becoming increasingly important worldwide. Basically, land is scarce. Urbanisation, soil degradation, nature conservation, land reform, conflicts over ownership and the conversion of pastoralist areas to arable lands are examples which indicate the variety and complexity of the issue. In terms of agricultural development, poverty alleviation and attaining social equity, land tenure plays a crucial role. This book reviews a multitude of aspects regarding land tenure. Although 'the guiding principles on land tenure in development cooperation' are intended to apply German development cooperation approaches more effectively, the book's focus and practical values are broader. It can also be read as a resource guide and/or an introduction to land tenure in general. The book is peppered with examples from all over the world and includes a CD-ROM and a video featuring a land trust model in Voi, Kenya. Land Tenure in Development Cooperation: Guiding principles.
