This report summarizes the implementation activities, “policy intersections” and the subsequent production of a draft model Land Use Bill (LUB, 2018) for Nigeria. This study broadly focused on land use intersections to determine appropriate policy for countering the problem of land rush/land concentration within the context of the previous Land Use Act (LUA, 1978). The workshop aimed to strengthen communities’ capacity to proactively engage legislators on the need for policy changes and urge support of the proposed bill for the establishment of Lands Use and Allocation Commission (LUAC) in order to improve community lands ownership.
