Changes in land access, institutions and markets in West Africa

Objective

This project will investigate the changing ways in which different groups gain access to land and other resources in West Africa, and the evolution of institutions through which claims to land are made. Field studies will be undertaken in Benin, Burkina Faso, Cote d'Ivoire, and Mali in places where land and other resources are increasingly scarce and subject to rising competition, to assess the impacts of land policy, legislation and interventions on the security of land claims. Emphasis will be given to ensuring effective dissemination of research findings through a variety of media, combined with a Participatory Learning Group on land to promote engagement with policy makers.
