Land Conflicts | Land Portal

Conflict is a major cause and, in some cases, result of humanitarian crises. Conflict frequently overlaps with underlying social inequalities, poverty and high levels of vulnerability. Conflicts are direct threats to food security as they cause massive loss of life and therefore loss of workforce (which is particularly important, as agriculture tends to rely heavily on human labour), loss of vital livestock, and loss of land. Conflicts displace millions of people each year, often forcing them to flee with nothing and making them extremely reliant on the communities that offer them shelter and humanitarian aid. This can place unsustainable pressure on hosting communities that often face high levels of food insecurity and struggle to make ends meet.

“Estamos en la torre 25 y, como se puede ver, aquí está la madera y todo el desastre que nos han hecho con la torre (…). Tengo aquí más de 56 árboles mochados y dejaron esto como una tumba grande. Nos han maltratado hasta poniéndonos a la Policía y al Ejército en contra de nosotros”.

ASF serves the most vulnerable people waiting for justice

ASF intervenes in countries where human rights are not respected, where political violence and armed conflict reign, and where legal rules are flouted.  Justice in those countries, too often arbitrary, does not guarantee the security of the population.  Conflicts are not satisfactorily resolved before the local courts.  People whose rights have been abused tend to resort to vigilante justice, which evolves into the law of the strongest or richest, and contributes to a climate of violence.

Civil Society Organisations for Peace in Northern Uganda (CSOPNU) is a coalition of more than 50 Ugandan and international non-governmental organisations working with women, men and children affected by the northern conflict.
CSOPNU believes that the needs and rights of people affected by the conflict must be central to the debate about northern Uganda.

The Commision Nationale des Terres et Autres Biens was established recently by the Government of Burundi to address widespread conflicts relating to land and other properties that have arisen following Burundi’s independence 45 years ago. 

 

For most Burundians, land is both history and livelihood. In a densely populated country where almost nine out of 10 citizens are subsistence farmers, land ownership is a desperate need and a flashpoint for conflict exacerbated by ethnic cleavages and waves of migration and return.
