Reinventing the modality of governance
Neither government alone nor people alone can register rural lands. 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 governance is necessary. In this way, village committees of rural land management (CVGFR) have a
great responsibility. The clearness of contracts indeed, relies on them. The role of the (CVGFR) should include:
- The creation of community land register, village maps showing geographic spaces and the relationships between the dwellers on the land
(customary rights holders, users, etc.)
- The registration, for family’s land, and any other person concerned by the land
- The assistance of the parties during the conclusion of contracts.
- The archiving of the village land information.
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. This can only be possible by the impulse of the government that should insure the implementation, the control and the training of
committees. It is worth it.
Relocating the governance will enable to improve land security, a breeding ground for investment
. So agriculture,
food security, conflict reduction and social cohesion depend 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 without intellectu-
al and cultural knowledge
This new frame of governance, a righteous circle between the government and communities is a favorable environment for lands formaliza-
tion. This will help the government in the implementation of the rural land act of 1998.
