In this publication two pioneering grassroots organisations from northern Tanzania examine and present their experiences and insights from their long-term work to secure the land rights of hunter-gatherer and pastoral communities. The case studies were presented at a one-day learning event held on 5th October 2012, when Pastoral Women’s Council (PWC) and Ujamaa Community Resource Team (UCRT) joined together to share and reflect on their work to secure land rights, to learn from each other, and to identify ways to build on their achievements moving forward.

The case studies are preceded by a synopsis of the political economy of land rights in Tanzania, providing background to help contextualize the studies. Following this is a summary outline of the case studies, and then a synthesis of the lessons and key points raised during the one day learning event.
