Uganda’s Land Tenure Systems And Their Impact On Development
Article by Nampwera Chrispus
The article explores the historical, legal, institutional and enforcement structure of Uganda’s existing land tenure systems, criticizing their relative impact on economic development, and emphasizing the quintessential role of an effective and efficient tenure system. Improvement of the current system is both directly and indirectly proportional to development. Further traversed are critical economic issues such as credibility of land from various frameworks, which develop into a rich blend of perspectives on the overall impact of the system on development in Uganda. As a major factor of production and a carrier of economic activities, the land resource in Uganda is an indispensable factor in economic development, and, being a prerequisite for both human and economic activities, its governance is therefore essential for development and growth.
