A “Rural land policy trajectories in West Africa and Madagascar” workshop will take place in Saint-Louis of Senegal from 15 to 19 January. This event aims to conduct a comparative survey of the trajectory of rural land reform processes in West Africa and Madagascar.
Examining these trajectories (the initiative, the various stages, stakeholder networks, controversies, periods of acceleration and slowdown or obstacles, divergences, etc.) in several countries will enable greater understanding of the reasons for these divergent trajectories, identification of the determinants of change or absence of change, discussion on the conditions for the emergence of attempts to implement inclusive reforms, conditions for political backing of such reforms, conditions for political compromise regarding objectives and procedures for reforms.
This workshop is organised by the Land and development technical committee with support from GRET.
