Reinventing the modality of governance
Government alone doesn’t have the
capacity to register rural lands, neither do the
populations. A complementarity between the two
is necessary.
Communities have a good
knowledge of their lands and that is an
indisputable wealth that should be absolutely
given more potential and be explored
. In order to
achieve this, a relocation of the land governing is
necessary. In this dynamic, village committees of
rural land management (CVGFR) have a great
part to play. Actually, the clearness of contracts
relies on them. The role of the (CVGFR) should be
seen as:
-The creation of community land’s registry, village
maps indicating geographic spaces and the
relationships between the dwellers on the land
(customary rights holders, users, etc.)
- The registration, for family’s land, of the referent’s
name that can act in the name of everyone.
- The assistance of the parties during the
conclusion of contracts.
- The archiving of the land information of the
In order to be efficient, the committee should be
made up of the key actors of rural land in villages
and their organization should be more structured.
That can only be possible by the impulse of the
government that should insure the setting-up, the
control and the training of the committees. It is
worth doing.
Relocating the governance will
permit to improve land security, a breeding
ground for investment
. So agriculture, food
security, conflict reduction and social unity are
depending on it. The relocation of the land
governance is a mean to reconcile tradition and
modernism in a context of globalization. It is a
modern policy that allows Ivory Coast to flaunt its
specificity by becoming a more attractive world.
Because we cannot make any breakthrough by
losing oneself intellectually and culturally.
This new frame of governance, a righteous circle
between the government and communities is a
good breeding ground for lands formalization. This
will help the government in the implementation of
the 1998 that governs rural land.
Reinventing land wealth
As a Feeding mother land but also very
commercial, that is possible. Thanks to a clear
contract solving, even before registration, lands
have a great value in their customary space and
the income from the land can absolutely be
individualized. Every user takes advantage of the
fruits produced by his work. The risk of investing in
rural land is drastically diminishing, because when
an agreement is clear and socially recognized,
the risks of contestations also diminish and the
social unity is reinforced. The atmosphere is
becoming good for loan, for the implementation
and the creation of wealth.
The Study results will be presented publicly in february 2016.
