Decentralised land governance in Botswana, Madagascar and Mozambique


Decentralised Land Governance: Case Studies and Local Voices from Botswana, Madagascar and Mozambique reviews the literature on decentralised land governance in Southern Africa, highlighting key issues and challenges of ‘land governance from below’. Written by Rick De Satgé and Karin Kleinbooi with Christopher Tanner, the case studies illuminate decentralised land governance practices and outcomes, as located in the social, legislative and institutional contexts of Botswana, Madagascar and Mozambique. Supplementing existing research on the selected country cases, the authors undertook comprehensive and in-depth interviews with selected key informants who illuminate the problems and responses. The book provides analysis and further reflection on key lessons from the country cases.

Through a range of voices representative of key stakeholders in local land governance, the book aims to exchange knowledge of experiences and practices at country-level. Decentralised Land Governance: Case Studies and Local Voices from Botswana, Madagascar and Mozambique is a source for land practitioners, scholars and policy makers, stimulating informed and evidence-based policy debate – in the relevant sectors and, more broadly, in society – about the merits and demerits of decentralised land governance.
