Scaling up Community-based Land Registration and Land Use Planning on Customary Land in Uganda

UCOBAC in partnership with UN-HABITAT/ Global Land Tool Network (GLTN) with funding from the Netherlands Embassy through the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO) is implementing a project Scaling up Community-based Land Registration and Land Use Planning on Customary Land in Uganda”. The project is being implemented in Eastern Uganda, Butaleja District in the Subcounties of Naweyo, Mazimasa, and Kachonga and builds from a successful pilot project implemented by UCOBAC from August 2018- November 2019 in the same Subcounties.

The project aims at contributing to the development of a structured and scalable approach towards improved tenure security and sustainable land use for men, women and youth on Customary Land through mapping and inventory of customary land rights using pro poor, and gender responsive land tools and approaches resulting in the issuance of certificates of customary ownership. These interventions are supplemented with capacity building of local land and natural resources actors to support the application process of Certificates of Customary Ownership (CCO), awareness raising, land conflict resolution and provision of gender responsive tools and approaches.

The project contributes to the goal of Uganda’s National Development Plan III (2020/21) to increase household incomes and improve the quality of life of Ugandans, especially through enhancing productivity and social wellbeing. It also supports the implementation of the National Land Policy of 2013 and the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals and the Voluntary Guidelines of the Responsible Governance of Tenure of Land, Fisheries and Forests in the context of the National Food Security (VGGT).
