Sudan – Urban Legislation, land and Governance
In this context, UN-Habitat has been supporting government authorities at national and state levels by providing technical assistance in the formulation of land management policies and strategies, including pro-poor and gender aspects. UN-Habitat has been working on enhancing the institutional capacity of Darfur and Blue Nile states, with a particular focus on:
- Assessing the different typologies of land conflict and disputes at the state level and identify suitable strategies to address them;
- Promoting inter-sectoral coordination to deal with land issues;
- Reinforcing the institutional capacity for land dispute resolutions and urban land/ rural management through on-the-job trainings, provision of technical assistance, development of tools and implementation of demonstration activities such as land surveying and registration;
- Strengthening the Native Administration and Customary Law Offices to reintroduce customary laws and protect land resources, and support reconciliation committees at the local level to act as mediators to solve land conflicts.
