Piloting the Social Tenure Domain Model in Uganda

Innovative Pro-poor Land Tools under Implementation
By 2030, 60% of the world’s population, or about 5 billion people, will live in urban areas; 78% of them will be in less developed regions. UN-Habitat highlights that the urban slum population is expected to increase to 1.4 billion by 2020. Most people living in slums do not have registered land rights, are not covered by conventional cadastres, and are excluded from other ‘benefits’ of urbanisation. Informal settlements or slums are defined as lacking one or more of the following five conditions: security of tenure, access to water, access to sanitation, durable housing quality and sufficient living space. Rather... (read more)
