NELGA Short Course - West Africa

The Political Economy of Land Governance in Africa

12 - 16 August 2019 I Accra, Ghana


Across Africa, the majority of both rural and urban residents have insecure tenure rights, either in law or in practice. They face the legacy of land dispossession, colonial legal codes, contested customary tenure systems, and growing pressure on land in the face of commercial investments. How can land rights and land governance in Africa be strengthened? To address these challenges requires building a highly-skilled cohort of land professionals and land policy makers. This short course will equip these leaders to resolve the land challenges facing the continent.

The Institute for Poverty, Land & Agrarian Studies (PLAAS) is hosting a short course on the Political Economy of Land Governance in Africa, in collaboration with Kwame Nkrumah University of Science & Technology (KNUST). The short course would be held in Accra, Ghana from 12-16 August 2019. The medium of instruction and assessment will be conducted in English.
