Land Tenure Alternative Conflict Management

It focuses on how to manage and resolve conflicts over land tenure rights, security of tenure and land access in the field of rural development. It results from complementary activities undertaken within FAO’s Livelihood Support Programme (LSP) and Land Tenure Service. It addresses the specific issues of land tenure identified in the volume “Negotiation and Mediation Techniques for Natural Resource Management” published by the LSP on September 2005. It is therefore presented as the second volume in that series, and is the first of a number of planned complementary volumes in that series that will address specific areas where conflict is increasingly evident.
