The German Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) created the Special Initiative “One world, No hunger” aimed to eradicate extreme hunger and poverty. Special focus is on Action Area 6 “Promotion of responsible land use and improvement of access to land”. The German Society for International Cooperation (GIZ) has presently implemented the Global Programme on Responsible Land Policy in 6 countries: Peru, Laos, Benin, Madagascar, Ethiopia and Uganda.

The aim of the Project on “Responsible Land Policy in Uganda (RELAPU)” is to Improve “Access to land as a key prerequisite for poverty and hunger reduction in rural areas for certain population groups, especially women and marginalized groups, in Central and East Uganda”. The approach of the project is to secure fair land use and land tenure rights for sustainable development and food security. RELAPU is working on three Fields of Action:

1) Improve the institutional framework and procedures to secure tenure rights in Central and Eastern Uganda;

2) Increase the engagement of the civil society in the formalization and implementation of a responsible land policy;

3) Raise Awareness of private agriculture investors and financial institutions about responsible land policy along internationally agreed guidelines and the National Land Policy (NLP).
