The project is analyzing the current legal and institutional framework related to sale and management of state owned agricultural land, including for compliance with the Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure of Land Fisheries and Forests in the Context of National Food Security (VGGT), and is providing policy recommendations for the use of management and sale of state land to improve farm structures and ensure access of smallholders to additional land. Upon the request of the Senior Management of the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Water Economy (MAFWE), a note on the establishment of a new Land Agency was prepared. The proposal is based on a brief analysis of the Macedonian country context in the area of land management and European good practices. The background for the proposal is a wish to ensure a stronger coordination between the different land management instruments and create synergies including land consolidation, to catalyze the process.
