The Guidelines for the Development of Curricula on Land Governance in Africa support the implementation of the AU Declaration on land issues and Challenges in Africa, in particular the call for Member States to, “Build adequate human, financial, technical capacities to support land policy development and implementation”. The guidelines are informed by key background documents prepared by the LPI, including the Regional assessment reports on land policy in Africa which identified, among other things, the challenges in Africa’s land sector; The background document on capacity development in Africa prepared from an examination of key capacity gaps in the land sector; Assessment report on industry needs and gaps in curricula for land governance in Africa. The Curricula also tends to be technical, lacking in the social/cultural, political, economic and environmental aspects crucial to land governance. Further challenges on capacity in Africa include limited focus on Land tenure, political economy of land, autochthonous populations’ ties to land and cultural/traditional land governance.
