South Sudan Rural Land Governance (SRLG) Project

The USAID/South Sudan Rural Land Governance (SRLG) project is to define and establish rural land governance institutions and processes to promote property rights, encourage sound land use management, mitigate conflict, reduce the potential for rural landowners to be divested of their land, and to encourage broad-based participation in future land allocation, management, and investment decisions in South Sudan.

South Sudan Rural Land Governance (SRLG) Project

The Sudan Rural Land and Governance (SRLG) project is a follow-on project to the Sudan Property Rights Program (SPRP), which assisted the Government of Southern Sudan (GOSS) to draft a land policy, based on extensive public consultation and research, with provided capacity-building support to the South Sudan Land Commission (SSLC). The Sudan Rural Land and Governance project helps to harmonize the land policy with the 2009 Land Act, supports two selected States and two County governments for more effective land administration and planning. The goal of this project is to define and establish rural land governance institutions and processes to promote property rights, encourage sound land use management, mitigate conflict, reduce the potential for rural landowners to be divested of their land, and to encourage broad based participation in future land allocation, management, and investment decisions. The following are the objectives of the project:

  • Provide ongoing technical assistance at the national level to South Sudan Land Commission to refine the Land Act 2009 and other related legislation as a result of the final policy outcomes
  • Develop draft implementing regulations at the state-level to stipulate land governance processes and related institutions in rural areas; pilot these regulations through the establishment and operationalization of at least two County Land Authorities (CLAs)
  • Build the capacity of state and county level land authorities through site specific actions to secure land tenure and improve land use planning in each of the two counties to attract local and foreign investments.
