    This paper reports the findings of an in-depth case study of a highly densely populated area in the Northwest of Rwanda
    which has been conducted during the period 1988-1993. It
    demonstrates that acute competition for land in a context
    characterized by too slow expansion of non-agricultural income
    opportunities has resulted in increasingly unequal land distribution
    and rapid processes of land dispossession through both operation
    of the (illegal) land market and evolution of indigenous tenure

    Rwanda has nearly 280,000 hectares of wetlands, almost 11% of the country’s total
    area.1 These wetlands provide critical habitats for wildlife and biodiversity, maintain
    important hydrologic processes that help to clean and protect ground and surface
    water, support a variety of local livelihoods and largely define Rwanda’s idyllic
    undulating topography.
    2 Despite their ecological and economic importance, Rwanda’s
    wetlands are being degraded and lost faster than any other ecosystem, with

    Across equatorial and east Africa, climate change is affecting the frequency, intensity
    and variability of regional climate patterns.1 Changes in rainfall patterns, temperatures
    and storm intensity are having significant effects on national economies, regional
    infrastructure, land use and local livelihoods. These changes are forcing national and
    local governments to adjust and adapt how they plan, prepare and implement day to
    day operations today and larger visions for the future. The ability of governmental

    The aim of this policy brief is to describe current and historical conflicts over rights to land and natural resources within and surrounding protected areas in Rwanda. We examine the roots of contested claims between citizens and the State and offer some potential avenues for resolving these conflicts in ways that consider both the priorities of the Government of Rwanda and the rights of local communities that depend on protected area resources.

    Rwanda

    Before 1999, land rights in Rwanda were governed by three regimes: customary
    (traditional) law, colonial laws still in effect, and laws enacted after independence. In each of
    these, men were privileged in ownership and control of land whereas women were excluded
    or had fewer rights.
    The 1999 Succession Law restructured and harmonized land ownership in Rwanda,
    superseding all prior legislation. A significant portion of these changes related to gender
    equality. Equal rights to umunani (umunani or ascending partition is an act accomplished by

    This brief discusses a pilot intervention in Rwanda led by the Belgian
    NGO, RCN Justice & Démocratie, with support from the International
    Development Law Organization (IDLO) and the Belgian Government. A
    more detailed and complete discussion of the pilot is given in Lankhorst
    and Veldman (2011a). The pilot aimed to transform the customary
    resolution of disputes involving women’s land claims concerning
    inheritance or marital relations. The intervention examined whether
    and to what extent it was possible to increase the scope for acceptance

    In setting out principles and internationally agreed standards, the “Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure of Land and Other Natural Resources” intend to provide practical guidance to states, civil society and the private sector on responsible governance of tenure. The Voluntary Guidelines (VG) will constitute a framework for policies, legislation and programs, but will not establish legally binding obligations nor replace existing national or international laws, treaties or agreements (FAO 2009c).

    This background briefing reports on a study of land access
    for returnees in Rwanda, and the impacts of land access
    policies in the post-conflict period. It also seeks to
    understand better the roles international humanitarian
    agencies and NGOs have played, and how their performance
    can be improved. It is not suggested that Rwanda is typical,
    but rather that the centrality of land issues there has thrown
    up a revealing set of broader questions.
