Sample text

Chapter 2 explores and analyses the links between strategies for formalising customary tenure, good governance principles, customary tenure dynamics and peri-urban conditions. Lessons are drawn from a number of cases in which unconventional or innovative tools have been used to secure land tenure in Sub-Saharan Africa and other parts of the world. Drawing on these examples and experiences from other countries allows us to better understand the case of Ghana, and also helps to justify the need for an alternative framework for administering land in customary areas.

The nature of pre-colonial customary land transfer was such that agreements could be made based on the assumption that the subsistence and security of the granting group would not be affected (Pottier, 2005). , 2003; Cotula and Toulmin, 2004). These new forms of land transaction developed between settlers and indigenes, and then between settlers, but not – or only marginally – between indigenes from the same landholding group (Cotula and Toulmin, 2004). , 2003). These changes have brought about new practices, including written contracts, which have replaced oral transactions (Cotula, 2007).

The chapter also addresses the study’s contribution to science and to the literature, and makes recommendations for future research. 1 Introduction Chapter 1 provided an overview of the issues related to tenure insecurity and the ineffectiveness of land administration systems (LASs) in peri-urban areas, and explained the need for a new paradigm for the formalisation and administration of customary rights. This chapter discusses the theories on customary tenure systems and formalisation strategies that have been adopted to secure land rights and administer customary land.
