Collaboration between civil society and government in formulating Uganda National Land Policy

This case study reports the constructive collaboration between the Government and Civil Society Organisations in the formulation of the Uganda National Land Policy between 2001 and 2013. The Policy, eventually adopted in 2013, incorporates to a large extent the views of the Civil Society Organisations involved in the formulation process and, as a result, addresses the needs of poor and vulnerable land users. The case study describes, first, the actions taken to make the collaboration possible and effective; second, how the collaboration contributed to improve land governance in Uganda; and third, the lessons that can be learned from this.
