Africa : World Bank Wants Improved Management of Land in Africa

jeudi 25 juillet 2013

African countries could effectively end land grabbing, produce more food and transform their development prospects if they modernised the complex procedures that govern land ownership and management, the World Bank has said.

In its latest report, dubbed "Securing Africa’s land for shared prosperity", released on Tuesday, the World Bank said more than 90 per cent of Africa’s rural land is undocumented, making it highly vulnerable to land grabbing and expropriation with poor compensation.

With only 10 per cent of Africa’s rural land registered, the report says, inefficient land administration means that it takes twice as long and costs twice as much to transfer land in Africa compared to industrialised countries.
