  • Updating land information systems created using unconventional approaches

    • Authors: Mireille Biraro, Prof. Jaap Zevenbergen, Dr. Berhanu Kefale Alemie
      Pages: 752 - 768
      Abstract: Many are the suggestions on how to develop a new land information system or evaluate how successful is the existing system. However, guidance about how the created system can be kept up to date is shallowly mentioned in the literature while it is the key feature for its sustainability.This paper is part of an extensive research done regarding the updating of land information systems that were created using unconventional approaches during systematic land registration. For these systems, huge database are created in a short period during the initial registration. To minimize uncertainties that may be in the updating phase, a framework was developed and presented in this paper.A refined traditional approach for system design was used in the development of this framework. The design requirements were extracted from literature and they were refined basing on the responses of land experts from nine case-study countries. These refined requirements were used to develop the updating framework and its validation was done by experts in the use of unconventional approaches in land registration.The developed framework explains what to consider in the updating to ensure the registration of changes in land records. The framework is composed of ‘dimension’ which is a group of parameters related to each other; ‘parameters’ of land information system that are worthy to consider in the updating and the ‘requirements’ describing how to design these parameters to ensure that changes in land records are being registered.

  • LAND TENURE AND AGRICULTURAL INTENSIFICATION BY WOMEN FARMERS IN NIGERIA:
           EFFECTS ON CROP COMMERCIALIZATION

    • Authors: Olubunmi Olanike Alawode, Yetunde Olasimbo Mary, Mololuwa Mayowa Awotunde
      Pages: 769 - 781
      Abstract: Women make essential contributions to agriculture by playing a large role in food crop production. They require land as source of rural livelihood and monetary strengthening through land right security. Women’s ownership of land and property can be potentially transformative, not only as a store of value, but also as a means of acquiring other assets and engaging in a range of markets. However, women have lower access to productive resources (land and capital) compared to their male counterparts. Women are generally influenced on account of unbound land rights, particularly because of their victimization on their access to, possession and control of land. Commercialization is sometimes associated with the adoption of new technologies, which may further reduce the role of women due to poor access to land. This paper broadly examines land tenure and agricultural intensification by women farmers in Nigeria, and their effects on crop commercialization. Specifically, this paper examines land tenure systems, analyzed agricultural intensification and evaluated crop commercialization among women farmers in Nigeria. The Nigeria General Household Survey (GHS) 2018 were used. Data for 1,962 women farmers were extracted from the dataset. These include socioeconomic characteristics of women farmers as well as information on land tenure systems, agricultural intensification and crop commercialization. Data were analysed using descriptive statistics to examine land tenure systems, Ruthenberg Index, Labour Use Intensity, and Fertilizer Use Intensity to analyze agricultural intensification, Crop Commercialization Index (CCI) to evaluate crop commercialization and Tobit Regression Model to measure the effects of land tenure systems and agricultural intensification on crop commercialization among women farmers in Nigeria. Results show that the total number of plots held by women was 2,378 and the average farm size cultivated was 0.43hectare. Women gained access to land mainly by inheritance (42.9% of the plots).  Though there are restrictions on land inheritance by women in some cultures, they have been able to have access to farm plots by land market; through outright purchase (39.9%) and rent (8.4%). Results on agricultural intensification show that the mean land use intensity was 0.26(±0.26). Also, on the average, labour use was approximately 55mandays/hectare and fertilizer use was 728kg/hectare. Crop commercialization results show that almost three-quarters (71.10%) of the women farmers were market oriented at different levels (0%<CCI<100%), 28.9% were fully subsistent (CCI=0%) and 2.30% fully commercialized their farm produce (CCI=100%). The mean CCI was 29.5(±31.3), meaning that only 29.5% of the quantity of the crops produced was commercialized. Tobit regression results show that land tenure systems and agricultural intensification have positive significant effects on crop commercialization among women farmers in Nigeria. Crop commercialization is low among women farmers. Land access and intensification improve crop commercialization by women farmers in Nigeria. There should be upgrading of informal land rights to legally enforceable rights for women farmers to provide greater protection (tenure security) for the women.

  • Zambia: Private sector investment in security of land tenure. From
           piloting using technology to National rollout

    • Authors: Didier Giscard Giscard SAGASHYA, Emmanuel Tembo
      Pages: 782 - 800
      Abstract: ABSTRACT Context and background Zambia has grappled with implementing the land titling from 2017 when it started the piloting of the National Land Titling Programme through the seventh National Development Plan (2017-2021). The implementation started in 2017 with a small pilot project conducted in Lusaka City in areas called Madido and Kamwala. In 2018, the Ministry of Lands and Natural Resources (MLNR) signed an MoU with Medici Land Governance (MLG) to conduct another larger pilot to collect landownership information for 50,000 land parcels in Lusaka City using modern technology, such as use of drone imagery and artificial intelligence for identification of property boundaries, use of tablets and apps to collect ownership information from landowner, automation of production of survey diagrams and general plans of areas.Goal and Objectives:The objective of this paper is to address the issues around the use of private financing to secure tenure rights in urban areas and the issues around cultural beliefs among some communities in Lusaka, and the problems around customary land boundaries and expansions of towns affecting the cultural settings in the fringes of urban areas.Methodology:The MLNR, in partnership Medici Land Governance is working towards enabling the systematic titling of former farms or converted/replanned areas in order to update the existing cadastre and land information system. These are large farms in urban areas that have been replanned and even developed but landowners were still waiting for titles or former government or parastatal land that were sold.This paper reports on the progress made thus far, the challenges and opportunities to carry out a successful systematic land titling programme. The paper also tackles issues around challenges with traditional land boundaries versus state land. The paper recommends the need to carry out comprehensive reforms around the whole land administration system. This includes developing a unified land registry with devolved authority to local authorities, improving the land administration system with linked and integrated key registers such as the National Registration Information System being developed, the Registration of Companies and Societies, and linking to more electronic payment platforms. The paper concludes that private sector participation in the land sector needs support using results-based approaches of financing by multilateral partners as envisaged in the Global Partnership for Results-Based Approaches.

  • In Quest of Customary Tenure Security: Opportunities and Challenges of
           Land Use Planning in Tanzania

    • Authors: Method Julius Gwaleba
      Pages: 801 - 822
      Abstract: Mainstreaming land use planning for tenure security in rural areas is a key issue to both scholars, academia and policymakers as well as governments in most developing countries. The need for local land use decision-making for enhancing tenure security as well as trade-offs for deliberative decision-making are crucial to improving local community needs, interests and concerns. Deliberative decision-making seeks to respond to local needs, interests and concerns with legitimate and acceptable social, cultural and institutional practices. This paper focuses on examining the challenges and opportunities for land use planning on tenure security in rural Tanzania.  In-depth interviews, survey questionnaires, and documentary procedures were used to gather both primary and secondary data. The survey questionnaires were administered to 167 local landholders or users (respondents) at Kibegere, Kisawasawa and Igima villages in Kilombero District in South-Western Tanzania. A snowball sampling method for data collection from the respondents were employed. Also, a purposive sampling technique was used to collect data from 20 Key informants. The findings indicate less benefits for the local people over the existing rural land use planning process. The paper suggests the conceptual framework for supporting land use planning to strengthen actor’s interaction in the land use decision-making process towards enhanced tenure security outcomes within the context of participatory governance.

  • EFFECTIVENESS OF PUBLIC INSTITUTIONS IN ADDRESSING ILLEGAL ACQUISITION OF
           STATE LAND IN ZAMBIA: Case of Ministry of Lands and Kitwe Municipality

    • Authors: Anthony Mushinge
      Pages: 823 - 831
      Abstract: Like in a number of African countries, the issue of illegal acquisition of state land is evident in Zambia. There are public land institutions (that is, Ministry of Lands and Natural Resources and Local Authorities) mandated to deal with illegal acquisition of state land in the country. Despite the existence of the two public institutions, evidence shows a high frequency of illegal acquisition of state land in the country. Thus the key question for this paper was: how effective are these public institutions in dealing with cases of illegal occupation of land in Zambian cities'This paper aims at investigating the challenges faced by public land institutions in dealing with the illegal acquisition of state land and establishing the consequences of illegal acquisition of state land.This study has revealed that the two public land institutions face various challenges in addressing illegal acquisition of state. Challenges among others included limited provision of information on land acquisition procedure to the public, failure to address illegal allocation of land by some Councillors and council employees as well as some political cadres, and poor land record keeping. Moreover, illegal acquisition of state land had consequences which included demolition of properties, violence, disruption in land use planning, and loss of government revenue. In view of the foregoing, illegal acquisition can be addressed through: sufficient provision of information on land acquisition procedure to the public; eradicating illegal allocation of land by some Councillors and council employees as well as some political cadres; improving land record keeping by digitisation of land record keeping by local authorities and ultimately strong political will to deal with this vice.

  • Vulnérabilité de la commune de Djilor (région de Fatick) aux
           changements climatiques et stratégies d’adaptation des communautés

    • Authors: El Hadji SOW, Ousmane BATHIERY
      Pages: 832 - 850
      Abstract: La commune de Djilor est marquée par une tendance à la dégradation des ressources. Elles sont soumises aux effets des changements climatiques. Ainsi, l’étude de la vulnérabilité de la commune de Djilor aux changements climatiques et stratégies d’adaptation des communautés fait l’objet de cette contribution. La démarche intègre les outils d’analyse de la vulnérabilité et de la capacité d’adaptation aux changement climatique (AVCA) et d’identification des risques au niveau communautaire - adaptation et moyens d’existence (CRiSTAL). Cela a permis de faire un diagnostic participatif des menaces, contraintes et opportunités liées aux changements climatiques et aux savoirs endogènes en matière de mesure d’adaptation. Les résultats montrent l’existence de 05 catégories de ressources : les ressources naturelles, les ressources physiques, les ressources humaines, les ressources financières et les ressources sociales. L’analyse de la vulnérabilité révèle que des aléas liés directement ou indirectement à ces changements climatiques sont présents et se manifestent plus par la salinisation, la variabilité pluviométrique, la sécheresse et les inondations. Ces aléas influencent négativement ces ressources et entrainent des conséquences sur l’agriculture, l’élevage, la pêche, l’exploitation forestière, le commerce. Face à cette situation, les populations adoptent des stratégies d’adaptation. Néanmoins, la situation persiste et ses effets sont encore remarquables.

  • National Land Coalitions and the Preservation of Communities’ Ancestral
           Land Heritage in Africa

    • Authors: Alain Christian Essimi Biloa, Constanze vonOppeln, Yonas Mekonen
      Pages: 851 - 866
      Abstract: National Land Coalitions (NLCs) work towards the recognition, defence, protection and redistribution of land rights at national level. They build upon frameworks on land tenure developed and agreed by different regional and intergovernmental institutions. Platforms are at the heart of protecting and preserving community and customary lands which constitute the major category of landholding in Africa. The purpose of this paper is threefold: share the successes of National Land Coalitions in selected countries in securing the land heritage for communities and other vulnerable groups; identify the ingredients for such successes including enabling factors and methods used; identify the bottlenecks and threats faced by the actors involved in these coalitions; as well as possible opportunities and recommendations to better capacitate these platforms in achieving their mandate. The analytical framework is based on three components of the syntax namely the Attribute, aIm, and Condition (AIC). The Attribute focuses on the organizational description, the aIm puts emphasis on the coalition’s goal, while the Condition highlights the means coalitions put at the service of their ambition. We undertook a literature review and three case studies serve as basis to analyse the contribution of National Land Coalitions to community land preservation. These include in Cameroon the Banen community in the Ebo Forest, and the land concessions in the Ntem Valley, and in Sierra Leone the palm oil investment by Socfin in the Malen Chiefdom. It is demonstrated that NLC actions and activities have contributed to increasing the preservation of community lands. These Coalitions emerge in a context of arable land scrambling, the adoption and implementation of new progressive land policies and laws that promote and protect community and customary land rights. Through intense policy dialogue, advocacy, and capacity strengthening, facilitated and supported by NLCs, more and more communities are in position to fight land dispossession by states and private actors. However, these Coalitions face challenges that hamper their action, including organizational structure, power asymmetries, financing and sustainability issues. In terms of opportunities, an increasing number of national legislative frameworks are being reviewed and land governance monitoring instruments like the LandMatrix and the LANDex are taken to scale. Spaces such as LandCollaborative put national platforms at the centre of people-centered land governance and facilitate horizontal learning between platform practitioners across countries in Africa.

  • Large-scale agricultural investments and household vulnerability to food
           insecurity: Evidence from Kenya, Madagascar and Mozambique

    • Authors: Wegayehu Fitawek, Sheryl L Hendriks
      Pages: 867 - 888
      Abstract: This study set out to estimate the role of large-scale agricultural investments on household vulnerability to food insecurity in sample communities in Kenya, Madagascar and Mozambique based on their adoption of coping strategies. The study used secondary data from the three countries (Kenya, Madagascar and Mozambique). The findings of the study revealed that households with members engaged in contract agreements with LSAIs adopted fewer coping strategies and were less food insecure than other households. Contract farming households seemed to cope better during food shortages (based on the marginal effects of the model). In comparison, households with members employed by a LSAI adopted more coping strategies than contract farming households. This might be because households with employed members had smaller numbers of livestock and smaller landholdings. Many LSAIs jobs were seasonal and low-paid, making the household less able to cope with food shortages. The study confirmed that households with more educated heads, smaller households, larger plot sizes and more livestock were less likely to slip into deeper levels of food insecurity should they face adversity. Most employed household heads had migrated from nearby districts. The job opportunities helped migrant workers mediate food insecurity. These results suggest that governments hosting LSAIs can promote plantation and contract farming that protect the land ownership of smallholder farmers, transfer good agricultural practices to improve agricultural production, household incomes and food security of smallholder farmers.

      Abstract: Millions of poor people who live in rural areas and rely on agriculture for a living need secure access to productive land. Gender disparities in access to productive resources, such as agricultural land, remain a major concern, especially in Nigeria. This study therefore, investigated the impact of land access and ownership on farm production across gender in Southwest Nigeria. A multi-stage sampling technique was used to select a total of 480 respondents comprising of 240 male headed households and 240 female headed households across the three states in Southwest Nigeria. Cross-sectional data were obtained through structured questionnaire and subjected to statistical analysis such as propensity score matching (PSM), inverse probability-weighted regression adjustment (IPWRA), and instrumental variable (IV) regression approach to control for possible endogeneity that could arise from the data collected. Farm yield of household heads was used as indicator to estimate the impact of land access and land ownership. Results show that most (56.7%) of male and 46.4% of female headed households acquired land through family inheritance. The significant difference existed between farm yield gained by male and female headed households due to their level of land access and land ownership at 5%. The size of the estimated treatment effect indicates a high improvement in the farm yield outcome of male headed households compared their female counterparts. Also, findings show that marital status, level of education, access to credit, and membership of association all had a positive and statistically significant relationship with both male and female headed households’ access to land and land ownership at various levels. This study thus, conclude that there were gender differences in land accessibility and ownership in the study area as male headed households were found to have more access to farm land than their female counterparts. Reliable data on male and female headed households’ access to land and land ownership are critical for providing an accurate picture of female headed households’ land tenure arrangement, improving policy formulation and monitoring progress towards the attainment of gender equality in land access is hence encouraged. Also, group formation and membership should be promoted and encouraged especially among female headed households to enhance their purchasing power through access to credit, and common voice in accessing communal lands.

  • Influence of Urban Land Markets on Emerging City Form;A Case of Dodoma
           National Capital City in Tanzania.

    • Authors: Azor William Nyakamwe, John Modestus Lupala, Emmanuel Elifadhili Mchome
      Pages: 914 - 932
      Abstract: Presently, one of the major challenges confronting the growth of rapidly urbanizing cities is the fact that, cities are growing in unsustainable form which is largely market-led growth and suffers from informal land market distortions. From a conventional point of view, planning aims at achieving compact growth. Presently, the pervasive knowledge gap especially inadequacies in theoretical premises on city forms and inadequate polices have contributed to mixed forms in many cities of the urbanizing world.  Extensive literature expounding on practical problems related to ineffective planning interventions is also scanty. This paper attempts to address the problems in the Tanzanian city context. It drew empirical evidences from four (4) settlements located in broad acre policy areas in Dodoma National Capital City.  Data were collected using official and household interviews, focus group discussions, measurements and observations. The study findings reveal that informal land buying and selling, informal plot subdivision and densification, informal change of land uses and unregulated land prices have contributed to the consolidated city form on areas closer to public services and Central Business District (CBD). The findings further reveal that there is sprawling of the city form in areas located far from public services, infrastructure and CBD. As a way forward it is recommended that, there is a need to revisit policies, legislation and guidelines governing city planning; agglomerate settlement centres and provide the same with services and infrastructure. It is also recommended that there is a need to redevelop areas along main roads and identify areas for infill development and establish special guidelines advocating towards compact city development

  • Women,Land tenure Security and Livelihoods in Amuru District

    • Authors: Stella Apecu Laloyo, Mulyampiti Tabitha
      Pages: 933 - 949
      Abstract: ABSTRACT Amuru district in northern Uganda has had intense land rights violations over the past fourteen years. There have been large scale land investments for commercial agriculture and other activities with limited community engagement, In many families men have sold off family land to ‘investors’ without consultation of their wives. The wave of commercialization and individualization of land has negatively affected women’s tenure security and livelihoods.Goals and ObjectivesThis paper analyses the nexus between women’s tenure security and livelihoods in Amuru District.MethodologyThe study used an explanatory sequential mixed methods design and a total of 159 women were reached in Amuru, Lamogi, Atiak and Pabbo sub-counties of Amuru District.ResultsWomen were facing intense land rights struggles as communal land tenure was losing its grip to a more individualised and commercialised tenure system. Women’s livelihoods mainly attained through agriculture were under threat, however women have demonstrated agency and resilience which this paper will document. Women have used their income to buy land and solidify their land claims by documenting their land jointly or independently. Women have also used their farming groups to open up more land and their village savings group to finance their livelihood activities that besides agriculture include charcoal burning, trading and brewing alcohol.Keywords:Women, land tenure security, livelihoods, agency, Amuru, Uganda

  • Endangered Culture The changing landscape of Matrilineal land ownership in
           rural communities in Kasanga settlement in Morogoro, Tanzania

    • Authors: Nelly John Babere, Beatrice Nepo Mbeya
      Pages: 950 - 964
      Abstract: ABSTRACT African culture and tradition on matrilineal land ownership are on the verge of disappearing. Land ownership in rural communities remains an important cultural dimension to secure livelihoods, economic growth, and sustainable development. Gender relations continue to interfere culture and tradition of matrilineal communities. Migration has changed the community and influenced the land ownership transformation from women to men. Given the general statistics in the dominant patrilineal societies’ women are routinely and systematically denied equal rights to access, use, inherit, control and own land. This means that women and their children also miss out on the vast advantages that come with property rights, putting their health, safety, economic security, and political rights in jeopardy. Different studies associate this with the unwritten customary laws applicable to their communities which must be proven in a court as a question of fact whenever the customary law of the matrilineal community is invoked.Goal and Objectives:This research aimed at investigating the experience of matrilineal societies’ land ownership transformation from matrilineal to patrilineal linage. Moreover, uncover the complexity of such transformation and how it affects women who depend wholly on matrilineal culture for land ownership.Methodology:Our study was based at Kasanga settlement in Morogoro, Tanzania. The study was purely qualitative. The research methods used in data collection were interviews, mapping and focus group discussion. A total number of 76 households were involved in the interviews. The findings indicated that the remaining community with matrilineal culture is disappearing.Results:The complex nature of transformed land ownership has ended up creating unequal communities. In these communities, it would be expected that most people who own land were supposed to be women. However, the ongoing land ownership transformation creates an alarm to remaining matrilineal communities. It is indicated that land ownership in Kasanga village entails more than 50% of the land is owned by males. Although 20 years ago, more than 60% of women constituted most of the landowners.  Access to land has changed so much over the past 20 years; migration into Kasanga village contributed to the social mix. Currently, access to land through purchase is almost dominating and make 30.3%, inheritance account for 32.8%, gift 7.9% and allocation by the village councils 2.6% and 26.3% do not own land at all.  60.9% of those people purchased land at Kasanga are males while female constitutes 39.1% only. The lineage has shifted from matrilineal to patrilineal by 7% and 93%, respectively.There is a high level of discrimination in land ownership due to changes in land ownership at Kasanga settlement as the patrilineal is becoming dominant, covering 78%, followed by mixed or joint ownership, which takes 15% and the remaining 7% are matrilineal. The communities who depended on matrilineal linage to access land are robbed of their right to access the essential resource. Only 23.07% of women have access to housing, whilst 56.41% are male.  80% of women who own land and have access to housing are in lousy condition. The migrants' communities into Kasanga village have changed the whole spectrum of matrilineal linage and forced traditional women to become landless. Others inherit a minimal share of land, and some are marginalized, limiting their access to housing. Following these changes, women face several challenges in accessing land, such as being given a small share of land; some are not given land as they are believed to be able to add value to it.

  • Matriarchy at the Crossroads in Africa: The Clash between its Theoretical
           and Practical Orientation in Tanzania’s Land Tenure Systems

    • Authors: Jumanne Kassim Ngohengo
      Pages: 965 - 983
      Abstract: Contrary to scholarship that attaches matrilineal practices to women’s control and power over land in Africa. This paper interrogated this theoretical positioning to its contemporary practicality by posing the discussions among the ‘Luguru’ matrilineal of Eastern Tanzania. The article has discussed how land has been claimed, transferred, and owned across gender lens with the apparent changes in political and socio-cultural settings of the community. Shreds of evidence deduced from triangulated approaches provided contradictory conclusions. There is a serious shift of power relations among the ‘Luguru’ land tenure tradition where women have gradually lost their ancestral land rights. The transformative keys among others are intertribal interference, immigration, commercialization of land, monetization, and intertribal marriages. If these dynamics remain unaddressed by the policy makers and other accountable authorities, women's participation in decision-making on issues related to land administration/management, use of farm proceeds or benefit sharing, and food security in the matrilineal setting will be threatened. As such, women will remain under continuous and serious socio-economic miseries that might cement their dependence on men.

  • Women’s Land Rights as a Pathway to Food Security in Uganda

    • Authors: Andrew Adem, Rashidah Namatovu, Michael Farrelly
      Pages: 984 - 995
      Abstract: Context and backgroundIn common with other African countries, colonization had an important impact on land relations in Uganda. Land is an important asset for people’s livelihoods and for economic development in Uganda, where the majority of people live in rural areas. Uganda’s land reform was introduced with the 1998 Land Act, which aims at enhancing tenure security by recognising existing rights to land. Furthermore, the evidence of any links between the formalisation of land rights, investment and productivity under different tenure systems is inconclusive. Recent studies have affirmed the importance of women’s asset ownership, including land, housing, and other assets, for economic development and social security. Despite a gender-sensitive legal framework, women have been discriminated against in both the customary and statutory settings. Improving women’s access to land is important to achieving food security in Uganda.Goal and Objectives:The major objective is to improve agricultural production of small-scale farmers through increased access, control and ownership of land as a productive resource in farming communities. Other specific objectives include to promote a more systematic and practical approach that CSOs, small scale farmers and other relevant stakeholders can use in addressing land rights among communities; to engage with and gain obligation of stakeholders, policymakers and small scale farmers to develop win-win strategies which reinforce the positive changes among vulnerable groups and enable them to address land right issues in their communities.Methodology:Informed by already existing quantitative and qualitative research conducted in the study areas, two main methodological innovations were applied. The development of this paper involved conducting a literature review on the available information on food security and land rights in Uganda. Key informant interviews were conducted in Amuria and Adjumani districts.Results:Emergence of men champions on land in communitiesWomen have developed negotiating capacity, which they have applied in different areas of their lives.Increased collaboration among different stakeholdersIncreased awareness on land issues among small scale farmers, especially womenIncreased platforms for women’s engagement in policy issues

  • DECONSTRUCTING GENDER CONJECTURES IN SOUTHEAST NIGERIA: BUILDING THE
           AFRICA WE WANT AND WOMEN ACCESS TO LAND

    • Authors: Amaka T.O. Emordi, Hope Ikedinma, Ginikach Emordi
      Pages: 996 - 1008
      Abstract: In many African societies, there are various forms and levels of cultural gender infringement of human rights and property denials. Over the years, these violations become well-established through cultural gender conjectures.  Perhaps, nowhere in Nigeria is this property rights violation more pronounced and evident than in the Igboland, the south-eastern part of the country. Conjectures such as women do not own land (nwanyi adighi enwe ala), another man’s compound (ama onye ozo) amongst others depict the social classification of women in southeastern communities. The implication is that a girl child who was born in any family is not considered a member of that family she would eventually leave when married. She, therefore, lacks the prerequisites needed to be bequeathed any property from her father by birth. For this reason, a male child is given special preference. Women in the southeast have no right to inherit property, especially landed property, except on the magnanimity of their in-laws, and this also largely depends on her ability to give birth to a male child. .Goals and objectives: Revealing cultural conjectures used in depriving women access to land and land use in southeastern Nigeria. Methodology: The paper uses mainly qualitative data from secondary sources complemented with informed opinion derived from semi-structured interviews with experts selected Nigerian southeast traditional institutions, women farmers, and the judicial system in the southeast. Theoretical insights are then drawn from the discussion. Results: The girl child born in any family is not considered a member of that family as she would eventually leave when married. She therefore lacks the prerequisites needed to be bequeathed of any property from her father by birth. For this reason, a male child is given special preference. Women in the southeast have no right to inherit property especially landed property except on the magnanimity of their in-laws, and this also largely depends on her ability to give birth to a male child.Women in the southeast need to have rights to inherit, own, acquire, and sell landed properties in Igbo communities. There is a need for gender-specific policies and services tailored towards women's access to land
