This report presents the findings of a land governance study commissioned by BRACED in the Karamoja region of Uganda. The overall objective of the study was to identify opportunities within the existing policy and legal framework in Uganda for securing communal land tenure for the agro-pastoral communities in Karamoja. The study included an in-depth analysis of land governance frameworks and its application to Karamoja, including linkages between land tenure and livelihoods, and challenges to communal land tenure. The study also identifies best practices in rural land protection of relevance to Karamoja and a step-by-step guide on land registration in Uganda.
